THE 1991 ANNUAL OF THE 

ASHE BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 

IS DEDICATED TO 

REV. WILLIAM C. "BILL" BALLOU 

A LABORER TOGETHER WITH GOD 

Rev. William C. Ballou, better known to most of us as "Bill" was 
born January 6, 1926 to E. Ward and Bertha Austin Ballou. "Bill" 
grew up in the Old Fields area, near Crumpler; and attended Heal- 
ing Springs School. 

Being drafted to serve his country, he entered the infantry divi- 
sion of the US Armed Forces one week after high school graduation. 

A furlough after six weeks of basic training, returned to his home 
base in Tallahassee, Florida; he and his company were sent to Ger- 
many. This was during World War II. Serving in Germany, even be- 
ing taken prisoner and near starvation - God spared his life for greater 
things and service to Him. 

After returning home from serving his country, Bill and Opal 
Lyalls were united in marriage by Rev. E.Z. Sexton on the front porch 
of the Sexton home August 21, 1945. They both love Ashe County 
and all its people, so they made this area their home. 

In 1961 Bill was called to the ministry of God and entered 
Fruitland Bible Institute. The latter part of 1963 Rev. W.T. Whit- 
tington and First Baptist Church in Jefferson, now J.F. Fletcher 
Memorial ordained Rev. Bill and he became their third pastor. 

He was selected in 1969 to serve the Ashe Baptist Association 
as Associational Director of Missions, and has held this post for 
twenty-two years. 

We are proud to have had such a dedicated man of the Lord 
to serve as our Director of Missions. He has done an outstanding 
job of serving the 50 churches, families, pastors, and mission efforts 
during this time. His gift and ability to teach, preach God's Holy 
Word, sing and his willingness to serve will be long remembered by 
all whom he knew and served. I am sure that one day he will hear 
the words, "Well done, thy good and faithful servant." 

He and Opal have four fine children, Sylvia Bower, Shelia 
Phillips, Larry and Lanny Ballou with seven grandchildren, which 
they have greatly influenced to serve the Lord and a great asset to 
our community.

FRIENDLY GROVE BAPTIST CHURCH 
A BRIEF HISTORY 



It would be impossible to determine who first suggested a church 
in our community, but it seems it originated at a prayer meeting in 
the yard of Mr. and Mrs. Kay Hardin on March 11, 1945. At this 
same time, two preachers in the county became concerned about 
a church in our community. Rev. G.A. Hamby and Rev. Harvey 
Phillips were inspired by God concerning a church in our communi- 
ty and talked with Mr. Ballard Harless about this. He showed them 
an envelope in which he had written the names of seventy-four peo- 
ple from our community who would be affected by a church. 

The church was organized with twenty charter members. Three 
of these charter members, Ethel Burchette, Anna Mae Taylor, and 
Rayborne Harless, are still members of the church. Rev. G.A. Hamby 
was elected as the first pastor. Rev. Hamby was overwhelmed by 
the friendliness of the people in the community and suggested the 
name be Friendly Grove Baptist Church. 

Mr. Ballard Harless donated the land on which the church was 
built. Sunday School was held in Mr. S.E. Wyatt's barn until the first 
sanctuary was completed. Friendly Grove Baptist Church held its 
first Sunday morning service in the new building on September 2, 
1945. 

The church has continued to prosper through the years. It has been 
enlarged three times and a parsonage has been purchased. On 
August 16, 1981 a ground breaking for the new sanctuary was held. 
The first service was held in the new sanctuary on the second Sun- 
day in March 1982. 

The church has been blessed with many good pastors and is 
presently being served by Rev. Charles A. Edwards who has been 
with us since the first Sunday in November 1987. 

Respectfully Submitted, 
Mildred Harless

GRASSY CREEK BAPTIST CHURCH 
A BRIEF HISTORY 

In the early period of this century, many of the churches in Ashe 
and Grayson counties had a pastor who served the church only one 
weekend each month. People would attend other churches when 
there was no preaching service in their local building. Baptists and 
Methodists often met together for preaching and Sunday School. 
School buildings were, at times, used for church services and Sun- 
day School for both denominations. A number of Grassy Creek 
residents of the Baptist faith attended preaching services and were 
members of New River and Pleasant Home churches. Because of 
distance and traveling conditions, Grassy Creek Baptists began think- 
ing of a Baptist Church locally. A committee was selected to explore 
the possibility. 

Looking around for leaders for this effort, the committee turned 
to Rev. Oscar Spencer, who lived in the Grassy Creek community, 
and to Rev. Jesse Shumate, who frequently preached in the area. 
These dedicated Christian men accepted the challenge and soon they 
had very persuasively convinced the people that this was a need that 
should no longer be delayed. Soon vision became reality when, in 
1927, land was obtained on Rt. 725 between Virginia Carolina High 
School and the Methodist Church, and construction began on a 
building, to be known as Grassy Creek Baptist Church. Mr. Mark 
Blevins, a competent carpenter, was selected to build the church. 
At first, this was a one-room, white frame structure and contained 
a home-made lectern and 20 pews which Mr. Blevins also made. 
This original structure was used until renovation was completed in 
1967. 

Records reveal the names of the following people as charter 
members: Mr. and Mrs. R.W. Blackburn, Mattie Baker, Luther 
Barker, Mrs. M.W. Blevins, Mrs. Annie Hayn<?s, Pollie Lane, Zella 
Lane, Punie Lane, Edith Livesay, Mrs. Paras ^de Rutherford, Josie 
Rutherford, Lester Whitely, Jimmie Wood, Mr: . Ruby Wood and Mrs. 
Bina Debord, Early pastors were Rev. J. Oscar Spencer, and Rev. 
Jesse Shumate. Many other residents, some of whom have passed 
away and others moved, later became members and staunch sup- 
porters of the church. 

Two years after the completion of the building, Grassy Creek Bap- 
tist Church housed the annual session of the Ashe Baptist Associa- 
tion for three days, August 30, 31, and September 1, 1929, and served 
lunch on the grounds. Rev. S. Coy Blackburn served as moderator 
of this associational session and Bryon Oliver served as clerk. Due 
to insufficient lighting, these sessions were held during the day with 
no night sessions. Official representatives or delegates of the associa- 
tional churches and ministers who traveled long distances were guests 
over night in the homes of members of the host church. This was 
an accepted custom in that period and members volunteered to pro- 
vide lodging for as many people as they could care for.

Later, as attendance and membership grew, the need for Sunday 
School space was recognized and a basement was added to provide 
for four classrooms and two bathrooms. A furnace was installed for 
central heat. Today the church has six Sunday School rooms and 
an enrollment of 78. 

Recently, a fellowship Building was begun and is now completed 
and is being well used. 

A number of fine ministers have served the church as pastors 
through the years, including J. Oscar Spencer, Jesse Shumate, Gwyn 
Blackburn, Henry Colvard, Paul Phipps, Reeves Jones, M.D. Hart, 
Squire Graybeal, Camet Halsey, Phillip Duvall, and the present 
Pastor, Rev. Kermit Goodman, who has served the church for the 
past 12 years.

Hamby, updates from recent church homecomings and information

Addendum I - ARTICLES OF FAITH 

(The Baptist State Faith and Message as adopted 

by the Southern Baptist Convention in 1963) 

THE BAPTIST FAITH and MESSAGE 

A statement adopted by the Southern Baptist Convention 




Baptist are a people who profess a living faith. This faith is rooted 
and grounded in Jesus Christ who is "the same yesterday and today 
and forever." Therefore, the sole authority for faith and practice 
among Baptists is Jesus Christ whose will is revealed in the Holy 
Scriptures. 

A living faith must experience a growing understanding of truth 
and must be continually interpreted and related to the needs of each 
new generation. Throughout their history Baptist bodie's both large 
and small, have issued statements of faith which comprise a con- 
sensus of their beliefs. Such statements have never been regarded 
as complete, infallible statements of faith, nor as official creeds car- 
rying mandatory authority. Thus this generation of Southern Bap- 
tists is in historic succession of intent and purpose as it endeavors 
to state for its time and theological climate those articles of the Chris- 
tian faith which are most surely held among us. 

Baptists emphasize the soul's competency before God, freedom 
in religion, and the priesthood of the believer. However, this emphasis 
should not be interpreted to mean that there is an absence of certain 
definite doctrines that Baptists believe, cherish, and with which they 
have been and are now closely identified. 

It is the purpose of this statement of faith and message to set forth 
certain teachings which we believe. 

THE SCRIPTURES 

The Holy Bible was written by men divinely inspirited and is the 
record of God's revelation of Himself to many. It is a perfect treasure 
of divine instruction. It has God for its author, salvation for its end, 
and truth, without any mixture of error, for its matter. 

Ex. 24:4; Deut. 4:1-2; 17:19; Josh. 8:34; Psalm 19:7-10; 
119:11,89; 105; 140; It reveals the principles by which God judges 
us; and therefore is, and will remain to the end of the world, the true 
center of Christian union, and the supreme standard by which all 
human conduct, creeds, and religious opinions should be tried. The 



86 ASHE BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 



criterion by which the Bible is to be interpreted is Jesus Christ.

21;33;44-46; John 5:39; 16:13-15; 17:17 Acts 2:16 ff.; 17:11; Rom. 
15:4 16:25-26; 2 Tim. 3:15-17; Heb. 1:1-2; 4:12, 1 Peter 1:25; 2 Peter 
1:19-21. 

GOD 

There is one and only one living and true God. He is an intelligent, 
spiritual, and personal Being, the Creator, Redeemer, Preserver, and 
Ruler of the universe. God is infinite in holiness and all other perfec- 
tions. To Him we owe the highest love, reverence, and obedience. 
The eternal God reveals Himself to us a Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, 
with distinct personal attributes, but without division of nature, 
essence, or being. 

A. GOD THE FATHER 

God as Father reigns with providential care over His universe, His 
creatures and the flow of the stream of human history according to 
the purpose of His grace. He is all powerful, all loving, and all wise. 
God is Father in truth to those who become children of God through 
faith in Jesus Christ. He is fatherly in His attitude toward all men.

4:6; Eph. 4:6; Col. 1:15; 1 Tim. 1:17; Heb. 11:6; 12:9; 1 Peter 1:17, 
1 John 5:7. 

B. GOD THE SON 

Christ is the eternal Son of God. In His incarnation as Jesus Christ 
he was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. 
Jesus perfectly revealed and did the will of God, taking upon Himself 
the demands and necessities of human nature and and identifying 
Himself completely with mankind yet without sin. He honored the 
divine law by His personal obedience, and in His death on the cross 
He made provision for the redemption of men from sin. He was rais- 
ed from the dead with a glorified body and appeared to His disciples 
as the person who was with them before His crucifixion. He ascend- 
ed into Heaven and is now exalted at the right hand of God where 
He is the One Mediator, partaking of the nature of God and of man, 
and in whose Person is effected the reconciliation between God and 
man. He will return in power and glory to judge the world and to 
consummate His redemptive mission. He now dwells in all believers 
as the living and ever present Lord.

C. GOD THE HOLY SPIRIT 

The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God. He inspired holy men of old 
to write the scriptures. Through illumination He enables me to 
understand truth. He exalts Christ. He convicts of sin, of 
righteousness and of judgement. He calls men to the Saviour, and 
effects regeneration. He cultivates Christian characters, comforts 
believers, and bestows the spiritual gifts by which they serve God 
through His church. He seals the believers unto the day of final 
redemption. His presence in the Christian is the assurance of God 
to bring the believers into the fullness of the stature of Christ. He 
enlightens and empowers the believer and the church in worship, 
evangelism, and service.

MEN 

Man was created by the special act of God, in his own image, and 
is the crowning work of His creation. In the beginning man was in- 
nocent of sin and was endowed by His Creator with freedom of choice. 
By his free choice man sinned against God and brought sin into the 
human race. Through the temptation of Satan man transgressed the 
command of God, and fell from his original innocence; whereby his 
posterity inherit a nature and an environmental inclined toward sin, 



88 ASHE BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 



and as soon as they are capable of moral action become transgressors 
and are under condemnation. Only the grace of God can bring man 
into His holy fellowship and enable man to fulfill the creative pur- 
pose of God. The sacredness of human personality is evident in that 
God created man in His own image, and in that Christ died for man; 
therefore, every man possesses dignity and is worthy of respect and 
Christian love.

3:10-18; 23; 5; 6; 12; 19; 6:6; 7:14-25; 8:14-18; 1 Cor. 1:21-31 
15:19; 21-22; Eph. 2:1-22; 3:9-11. 

SALVATION 

Salvation involves the redemption of the whole man, and is of- 
fered freely to all who accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour, who 
by His own blood obtained eternal redemption for the believer. In 
its broadest sense salvation includes regeneration, sanctification, and 
glorficiation. 

A. Regeneration, or the new birth, is a work of God's grace whereby 
believers become new creatures in Christ Jesus. It is a change of heart 
wrought by the Holy Spirit through conviction of sin, to which the 
sinner responds in repentance toward God and faith in the Lord Jesus 
Christ. 

Repentance and faith are inseparable experiences of grace. Repen- 
tance is a genuine turning from sin toward God. Faith is the accep- 
tance of Jesus Christ and commitment of the entire personality to 
Him as Lord and Saviour. Justification is God's gracious and full ac- 
quittal upon principles of His righteousness of all sinners who repent 
and believe in Christ. Justification brings the believer into a relation- 
ship of peace and favor with God. 

B. Sanctification is the experience, beginning in regeneration, by 
which the believer is set apart to God's purposes, and is enabled to 
progress toward moral and spiritual perfection through the presence 
and power of the Holy Spirit dwelling in him. Growth in grace should 
continue throughout to regenerate a person's life.

GOD'S PURPOSE AND GRACE 

Election is the gracious purpose of God, according to which he 
regenerates, sanctifies, and glorifies sinners. It is consistent with the 
free agency of man, and comprehends all the means in connection 
with the end. It is a glorious display of God's sovereign goodness, 
and is infinitely wise, holy, and unchangeable. It excludes boasting 
and promotes humility. 

All true believers endure to the end. Those whom God has accepted 
in Christ, and sanctified by His Spirit, will never fall away from the 
state of grace, but shall persevere to the end. Believers may fall into 
sin through neglect and temptation, whereby they grieve the Spirit, 
impair their graces and comforts, bring reproach on the cause of 
Christ, and temporal judgements on themselves, yet they shall be 
kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation.

THE CHURCH 

A New Testament church of the Lord Jesus Christ is a local body 
of baptized believers who are associated by covenant in the faith and 
fellowship of the gospel, observing the two ordinances of Christ, com- 
mitted to His teachings, exercising the gifts, rights, and privileges 
invested in them by His Word, and seeking to extend the gospel to 
the ends of the earth. 

This church is an autonomous body, operating through democratic 
processes under the Lordship of Jesus Christ. In such a congrega- 
tion mmbers are equally responsible. Its Scriptural officers are pastors 
and deacons. 

The New Testament speaks also of the church as the body of Christ 
which includes all of the redeemed of all ages.

BAPTISM AND THE LORD'S SUPPER 

Christian baptism in the immersion of a believer in water in the 
name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. It is an act of obe- 
dience symbolizing the believer's faith in a crucified, buried, and risen 



90 ASHE BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 



Saviour, the believer's death to sin, the burial of the old life, and 
in the resurrection to walk in newness of life in Christ Jesus. It is 
a testimony to his faith in the final resurrection of the dead. Being 
a church ordinanace, it is prerequisite to the privileges of church 
membership and to the Lord's supper. 

The Lord's Supper is a symbolic act of obedience whereby members 
of the church, through partaking of the bread and the fruit of the 
vine, memorialize the death of the Redeemer and anticipate His se- 
cond coming.

THE LORD'S DAY 

The first day of the week is the Lord's Day. It is a Christian institu- 
tion for regular observance. It commemorates the resurrection of 
Christ from the dead and should be employed in exercises of wor- 
ship and spiritual devotion, both public and private, and by refrain- 
ing from worldy amusements, and resting from secular employments, 
work of necessity and mercy only being excepted.

THE KINGDOM 

The Kingdom of God includes both His general sovereignty over 
the universe and His particular kinship over men who willfully 
acknowledge Him as King. Particularly the Kingdom is the realm of 
salvation into which men enter by trustful, childlike, commitment 
to Jesus Christ. Christians ought to pray and to labor that the 
Kingdom may come and God's will be done on earth. The full con- 
summation of the Kingdom awaits the return of Jesus Christ and the 
end of this age.

LAST THINGS 

God, in His own time and in His own way, will bring the world 
to its appropriate end. According to His promise, Jesus Christ will 
return personally and visibly in glory to the earth; the dead will be 
raised; and Christ will judge all men in righeousness. The unrighteous 
will be consigned to Hell, the place of everlasting punishment. The 
righteous in their resurrected and glorified bodies will receive their 
reward and will dwell forever in Heaven with the Lord. 

Isa. 2:4; 11:9; Matt. 16-27; 18:8-9; 19:28; 24:27; 30; 36; 44; 
25;31-46; 26:64; Mark 8:38; 9:43-48; Luke 12:40; 48; 16:19-26;

3-2; Jude 14; Rev. 1:18, 3:11- 20:1 to 22:13. 



EVANGELISM AND MISSIONS 

It is the duty and privilege of every follower of Christ and of every 
church of the Lord Jesus Christ to endeavor to make disciples of all 
nations. The new birth of man's spirit by God's Holy Spirit means 
the birth of love for others. Missionary efforts on the part of all rests 
thus upon a spiritual necessity of the regenerate life, and is express- 
ly and repeatedly commanded in the teachings of Christ. It is the 
duty of every child of God to seek constantly to win the lost to Christ 
by personal effort and by all other methods in harmony with the 
gospel of Christ. 

Gen. 12:1-3; Ex. 19:5-6; Isa. 6:1-8; Matt. 9:37-38; 10:5-15; 
13:18-30; 37-43; 16:19; 22:9-10; 24:14; 28:18-20; Luke 10:1-18; 
24:46-53; John 14:11-12; 15:7-8; 16; 17:15; 20:21; Acts 1:8; 2;

2 Tim. 4-5; Heb. 2:1-3; 11:39 to 12:2 1 Peter 2:4-10; Rev. 22:17. 



EDUCATION 

The cause of education in the Kingdom of Christ is co-ordinate 
with the causes of missions and general benevolence, and should 
receive along with these the liberal support of the churches. An ade- 
quate system of Christian schools is necessary to a complete spiritual 
program for Christ's people. 



92 ASHE BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 



In Christian education there should be a proper balance between 
academic freedom and academic responsibility. Freedom in any 
orderly relationship of human life is always limited and never ab- 
solute. The freedom of a teacher in a Christian school, college, or 
seminary is limited by the preeminence of Jesus Christ, by the 
authoritive nature of the Scriptures, and by the distinct purpose for 
which the school exists. 

Deut. 4:1; 5:9; 14; 6:1-10; 31:12-13; Neh. 8:1-8; Job 28:28; Psalm 
19:7; ff.; 119:11; Prov. 3:13ff.; 4:1-10; 8:1-7; 11; 15:14; Eccl. 7:19; 
Matt. 5:2; 7:24 ff.; 28:19-20; Luke 2:40; 1 Cor. 1:18-31; Eph. 4:11-16; 
Phil. 4:8; Col. 2:3; 8-9; 1 Tim. 1:3-7; Tim. 2:15; 3:14-17; Heb. 5:12 
to 6:3; James 1:5; 3:17. 



STEWARDSHIP 

God is the source of all blessings, temporal, and spiritual; all that 
we have and are we owe to Him. Christians have a spiritual debtor- 
ship to the whole world, a holy trusteeship in the gospel, and a bin- 
ding stewardship in their possessions. They are therefore under 
obligations to serve Him with their time, talents, and material posses- 
sions; and should recognize all these as entrusted to them to use for 
the glory of God and for helping others. According to the Scriptures, 
Christians should contribute of their means cheerfully, regularly, 
systemically, proportionately, and liberally for the advancement of 
the Redeemer's cause on earth. 

Gen. 14:20; Lev. 27:30-32; Deut. 8:18; Ma. 3:8-12; Matt. 6:1-4 
19-21; 23:23; 25:14-29; Luke 12:16-21; 42; 16:1-13; Acts 2:44-47 
5:1-11, 17:24-25; Rom. 6:6-22; 12:1-2; 1 Cor. 4:1-2; 6:19-20; 12 
16:1-4; 2 Cor. 8-9; 12:15; Phil. 4:10-19; 1 Peter 18:19. 



COOPERATION 

Christ's people should, as occasion requires, organize such 
associations and conventions as may best secure cooperation for the 
great objects of the Kingdom of God. Such organizations have no 
authority over one another or over the churches. They are volun- 
tary and advisory designated to elicit, combine, and direct the 
energies of our people in the most efficient manner. Members of New 
Testament churches should cooperate with one another in carrying 
forward the missionary, educational, and benevolent ministries for 
the extension of Christ's Kingdom. Christian unity in the New Testa- 
ment sense is spiritual harmony and voluntary cooperation for com- 
mon ends by various groups of Christ's people. Cooperation is 
desirable between the various Christian denominations, when the end 
to be attained is itself justified, and when such cooperation involves 
no violation of conscience or compromise of loyalty to Christ and 
His Word as revealed in the New Testament.

THE CHRISTIAN AND THE SOCIAL ORDER 

Every Christian is under obligation to seek to make the will of 
Christ supreme in his own life and in human society. Means and 
methods used for the improvement of society and the establishment 
of righteousness among men can be truly and permanently helpful 
only when they are rooted in the regeneration of the individual by 
the saving grace of God in Christ Jesus. The Christian should op- 
pose in the spirit of Christ every form of greed, selfishness, and vice. 
He should work to provide for the orphaned, the needy, the aged, 
the helpless and the sick. Every Christian should seek to bring in- 
dustry, government, and society as a whole under the sway of the 
principles of righteousness, truth and brotherly love. In order to pro- 
mote these ends Christians should be ready to work with all men 
of good will in any good cause always being careful to act in the spirit 
of love without compromising their loyalty to Christ and His truth. 

Ex, 20:3-17; Lev. 6:2-5; Deut. 10:12; 27:17; Psalm 101:5; Mic. 
6:8; Zach. 8:16; Matt. 5:13-16; 43-48; 22:36-40; 25:35; Mark 
1:29-34; 2:3 ff.; 10:21; Luke 4:18-21; 10:27-37; 20-25; John 15:12;

Gal. 3:26-28; Eph. 6:5-9; Col. 3:12-17; Thes. 3:12; Philemon; James 
1:27:2-8. 



PEACE AND WAR 

It is the duty of Christians to seek peace with all men or principles 
of righteousness. In accordance with the spirit and teachings of Christ 
they should do all in their power to put an end to war. 

The true remedy for the war spirit is the gospel of our Lord. The 
supreme need of the world is the acceptance of His teachings in all 
the affairs of men and nations, and the practical applications of His 
laws of love. 

Isa. 2:4; Matt. 5:9; 38-48; 6:33; 26-52; Luke 22:36; 38; Rom. 
12:18-19; 13:1-7; 14:19; Heb. 12:14; James 4:1-2. 



RELIGIOUS LIBERTY 

God alone is Lord of the conscience and He has left it free from 
the doctrines and commandments of men which are contrary to His 



94 ASHE BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 



Word or not contained in it. Church and state should be separate. 
The state owes to every church protection and full freedom in the 
pursuit of its spiritual ends. In providing for such freedom no ec- 
clesiastical group or denomination should be favored by the state 
more than others. Civil government being ordained of God, it is the 
duty of Christians to render loyal obedience thereto in all things not 
contrary to the revealed will of God. The church should not resort 
to the civil power to carry on its work. The gospel of Christ con- 
templates spiritual means alone for the pursuit of its ends. The state 
has no right to impose penalties for religious opinions of any kind. 
The state has no right to impose taxes for the support of any form 
of religion. A free church in a free state is the Christian ideal, and 
this implies the right of free and unhindered access to God on the 
part of all men, and the right to form and propagate opinions in the 
sphere of religion without interference by the civil power.

Jesus Christ. 

5. We believe that Baptism and the Lord's Supper are ordinances 
instituted by Jesus to be practiced only by believers in their spiritual 
order.

by a qualified administrator, and that those who are thus baptized 
and are in fellowship with the church in feeling and doctrine should 
take the Lord's Supper. 



1 04 ASHE BAPTIST ASSOCIATION

Glory.

by permission of the body.

CHURCH COVENANT 

Having been led as we believe, by the Spirit of God, to receive the 
Lord Jesus Christ as our Saviour, and on profession of our faith, hav- 
ing been baptized in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and 
of the Holy Ghost, we do now, in the presence of God, angels and 
the assemble, most solemnly and joyfully enter into this covenant 
with one another, as one body in Christ. 

We engage, therefore, by the aid of the Holy Spirit, to walk together 
in Christian love; to strive for the advancement of this church, in 
knowledge, holiness and comfort to promote its prosperity and 
spirituality; to sustain its worship, ordinances, discipleship and doc- 
trines; to contribute cheerfully and regularly to the support of the 
ministry, the expenses of the church and the relief of the poor; and 
the spread of the Gospel through all nations. 



ASHE BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 1 05 



We also engage to maintain family and secret devotions; 
to religiously educate our children; to seek the salvation of our kin- 
dred and acquaintances; to walk circumspectly in the world; to be 
just in our dealing, faithful in our engagements, and exemplary in 
our department; to avoid all tattling, back biting and excessive anger, 
to abstain from the sale and use of intoxicating drinks as a beverage, 
and to be zealous in our efforts to advance the kingdom of our 
Saviour. 

We further engage to watch over one another in brotherly love; 
to remember each other in prayer; to aid each other in sickness and 
distress; to cultivate Christian sympathy in feeling and courtesy in 
speech; to be slow to take offense but always ready for reconcilia- 
tion; and mindful of the rule of our Saviour to secure it without delay. 

We moreover engage that when we remove from this place we will, 
as soon as possible, unite with some other church, where we can 
carry out the spirit of this covenant and the principles of God's Word.

THE BIBLICAL RECORDER 

The Baptist world is changing rapidly; some would contend it is 
for good; while others think it is nothing short of a tragedy. 

Whatever one's view may be, there is an indispensable need for 
correct and reliable information. The BIBLICAL RECORDER was 
born and continues to serve for that purpose. 

People are reading less than any time in recent history. It is true 
of secular publications, it is true of wholesome books from respected 
libraries, it is true of religious publications. We live in an electronic, 
fast-food, everything is disposable age! We often think we know the 
answers only to discover later we do not. 

An informed Baptist is a better Baptist; an uninformed Baptist may 
be an uninvolved or disruptive Baptist. No democracy, including our 
local churches and the denomination they comprise, can survive long 
withot an informed, involved constituency which makes corporate 
decisions based upon accurate information from reliable sources. 

The most important thing facing us at this point is to get the 
Recorder into more Baptist homes than ever before. Your support 
as a subscriber and reader and your encouragement to others will 
enable the paper to better serve the constituency with accurate and 
helpful information delivered to Baptist homes and churches. We 
need your help! 

In order to save churches large amounts of money and to increase 
the readership of the Recorder, Church News Service (CNS) was 
launched in 1990. This system lets any congregation have their 
church newsletter incorporated into the BIBLICAL RECORDER 
which saves staff time, postage and printing costs. Usually, for less 
than what it costs to produce the church newsletter. CNS gives the 
entire Baptist communication package to each family in the con- 
gregation. We are steadily adding churches to the CNS program. 

The paper focuses more and more attention on North Carolina 
Baptist with news, features and inspirational articles which will en- 
courage individuals and churches in their witness and ministry. 

Never has God given Baptists a greater opportunity; never have 
there been as many difficulties and obstacles to overcome. One sure 
way to conquer problems and overcome the barriers to effective 
witness and ministry is to have the facts, know the issues and be ade- 
quately informed. 

That is why the Recorder was born; that is why it serves today.

RALPH SMITH, Chairman of the Board of Directors 
LARRY L. LEWIS, President 

SO THE LOST MAY HEAR 

The Home Mission Board appointed 66 church apprentices for 2 
year assignments in 17 state conventions; 104 churches; and 609 
church-type missions were started in predominatly Anglo com- 
munities. We now have 43,419 congregations affiliated with the 
Southern Baptist Convention. We are on target toward our Bold Mis- 
sion Thrust goal of 50,000 churches and church-type missions by 
A.D. 2000. 

We have 446 etnic/language-culture congregations. 

Missionary personnel figures reached an all-time high of 4,573. 
We are on target toward our Bold Mission Thrust goal of 5,000 mis- 
sionaries by A.D. 2000. 

The HMB Directors approved the sale of the Board's Spring Street 
property. Our goal is to purchase a site during 1991, then construct 
and move into a new building by 1995. 

Approximately 150 Southern Baptist chaplains went to serve with 
United States forces in Saudi Arabia. 

More than 500 people attended the HMB's second National Soul- 
Winning Conference at Rosewell Street Baptist Church in Marietta, 
Ga. 

More than 70 representatives from 32 evangelical denominations 
met at Larry Smith's invitation to a dialogue on church planting. They 
assured us that Southern Baptist are not the only ones interested 
in starting churches. If the combined goals of all groups represented 
are met, 55,836 churches will be started in North America by A.D. 
2000, increasing the current number almost 33 percent. 

In 1990, The Home Mission Board coordinated the work of 1,301 
MSC volunteers in more than 900 places, averaging 2,000 service- 
hours per year. In recognition and appreciation of their work, the 
Board of Directors requested the HMB count MSC volunteers serv- 
ing at least two-year terms in our yearly missionary count. 

The Annie Armstrong Easter Offering: This offering 100 percent 
of which goes to field missionary work, increased 8.14 percent over 
1989 and provided $35,679,669 for evangelism, church starting, 
church growth, and ministry. Thanks to Woman's Missionary Union 
and Brotherhood who promoted the offering. And thanks to Southern 
Baptist, who continue to give their financial and prayer support for 
home missions.

Our support of missions through the Cooperative Program has 
been a bond among Southern Baptist for 65 years. For the sake of 
missions at home and abroad, I urge you not to break that bond.

FOREIGN MISSIONS 

A Year To Reflect 

We are just ten years away from the year 2000. That's the year 
that Southern Baptists set as the Bold Mission Thrust goal (a plan 
to present the gospel to every person in the world.) 

How are we doing? 

At the end of 1990, Southern Baptists had many reasons to rejoice. 
—1,550 new churches were started. 

--208,381 new Christians were baptized (second highest number ever 
reported) 

—missionaries were assigned to five new or reopened fields: 
Nicaragua, Denmark, Soviet Union, Czechoslovakia, and Bulgaria. 
--17 state Baptist conventions were linked with overseas Baptists in 
partnership projects. 

—286 relief and devlopment projects were carried out in 62 countries. 
-3,863 missionaries were working in 121 countries and assisting in 
10 others. 

—overseas Baptist church membership grew by about 9% (to 2./ 
million members) 

-a record number of 11,650 Southern Baptist volunteers participated 
in overseas projects. 

—Southern Baptist spent $7.5 million for overseas hunger and relief 
projects. 

-medical missionaries and workers treated over 1.5 million patients 
overseas. 
— discipleship training enrollment almost doubled. 

What must we do now? 

Foreign Mission Board President R. Keith Parks pleads for all 
Christians to commit themselves to reaching those who want to see 
Jesus-and to back that commitment with their prayers, money, and 
lives. One-fourth of the world is isolated from the gospel of Jesus 
Christ. Parks believes that we must now focus our attention on those 
who live in places without churches, Bibles, or Christian broadcasts. 
All Southern Baptists must face the reality that exists in our world 
today: 



116 ASHE BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 



1. 20% of the world's population lives in poverty without adequate 
food, clothing or shelter. 

2. Another 25% (about 1.25 billion people) are always hungry. 

3. 60% of the world's population do not have safe water supplies. 

4. Christians make up about 34% of the world's population.. yet, 
they control 62% of the world's wealth. And then 97% of that wealth 
is spent on ouselves instead of the poor, hungry people who haven't 
had a chance to hear the gospel. 

President Parks challenges every Christian "to wrap his or her body 
around Jesus, die to self-interest and self-glory and self-achievement 
and say to God, now take this body and use it to carry out your plan 
on earth." 

Bold Mission Thrust can be achieved. Nothing can stop prayer. 
In 1990, Southern Baptists rejoiced in answered prayers, both in 
areas where missionaries could witness freely and in places where 
Christianity had been suppressed. We must all join together and pray 
without ceasing and give sacrificially so that our goal can be reach- 
ed by 2000.

EDUCATION COMMISSION REPORT 
TO SOUTHERN BAPTIST CONVENTION 

The work of the Education Commission is to encourage Southern 
Baptists to see educational activities and institutions as a means of 
witnessing to the saving power of Jesus Christ and to the consequence 
of this salvation in changing society as a whole. The activities of the 
Commission are provided in specific services to institutions and to 
those individuals who nerve on the faculties and staffs of these in- 
stitutions or in positions within the state conventions or structured 
groups, as well as local churches which are related to them. This 
program provides information and consultation to those who would 
reinforce educational activities. 

Education has been a part of the mission of Southern Baptists since 
before the inception of the Southern Baptist Convention. This par- 
ticular emphasis is recognized as a means for applying the gospel 
to all areas of human knowledge and endeavor in seeking to lead 
all to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ, while at the same time 
providing training for chuch leaders and members, as well as en- 
couraging Christian leaders of all types for the society as a whole. 

SUPPORT - The 71 Southern Baptist educational institutions 
received $95,845,040 from their sponsoring state conventions and 
the Southern Baptist Convention. Of this amount, $1,048,550 was 
given as an addition to endowment funds. Other donations, gifts, and 



ASHE BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 117 



grants for current operations totaled $77,644,125. Endowment funds 
amounted to $1,686,303,150; property was valued at 
$1,925,254,204, making assets total $3,611,557,354. 

CHURCH VOCATION VOLUNTEERS - Church vocation 
volunteers enrolled in the colleges and schools sponsored by Baptist 
state conventions and in the seminaries sponsored by the Southern 
Baptist Convention totaled 199,943 for 1990-91. 

PROGRAM REPORT - The Program of Christian Higher Educa- 
tion Leadership. The Commission Program for five years has included 
an emphasis to encourage faculty members at Baptist institutions 
in the integration of personal faith and professional academic 
discipline. Seminars have been held emphasizing the importance of 
faculty members witnessing to their personal faith in their profes- 
sional endeavors. During the past year, seminars continue to be con- 
ducted, primarily on local campuses, and plans have been developed 
for a national conference to be held in 1992 in Birmingham, 
Alabama, which will bring together at least 1,000 faculty members 
of all academic disciplines from the various campuses to expore ways 
for faith and professional discipline coordination. 

Workshops in legal concerns, alumni affairs, admissions, religious 
activities, public relations and development were held to assist staff 
members in their assigned responsiblities within the institutions. 

The Placement Registry conducted by the Education Commission 
continues to assist Baptist institutions in identifying prospective facul- 
ty members. In the past academic year, 486 prospective faculty 
members have been listed in the Placement Registry. It has been 
the purpose of the Commission to expand this servicce to all Baptist 
institutions. 

The annual Baptist Seminary, College and School Day is observ- 
ed on the Convention calendar on the third Sunday in February anual- 
ly. The emphasis day for the past year was conducted on February 
17, 1991. Materials related to the observance of the calendar day 
were developed and distributed to all churches and conventions en- 
tities involved in the emphasis. 

Regular publications of the Education Commission include The 
Southern Baptist Educator published monthly except July and 
December and The Directory of Southern Baptist Colleges and 
Schools, produced every other year. In addition to these regular 
publications, several brochures on related educational subjects are 
produced. In 1991, Education Commission produced The Gospel in 
Wholeness, the papers read at the Baptist International Conference 
on Theological Education (BICTE III) held in 1989, and A Directory 
of Baptist Seminaries, Colleges, & Schools for the Evangelism and 
Education Committee for the Baptist World Alliance. 

The Commission also has an ongoing reseach program in areas 
related to the educational emphasis on the institutions and state 
conventions.

EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE REPORT 

The Executive Committee has had a busy year with a lot of deci- 
sions to make. 

It has been a joy to serve as Moderator this year and work with 
each church and their representatives. The meetings were very pro- 
gressive and the spirit of the meetings were very cooperative. 

On February 25, a special meeting was called to call the asscia- 
tion into special session for the purpose of voting on Rev. Jack Pugh 
as the Director of Missions. 

The Association met in a special called meeting to vote on Bro. 
Pugh and he now serves as The Director of Missions. 

A Special Thanks to the Missions Committee for their work and 
cooperation in seeking a Director of Missions. 

During our meetings we had an average church attendance of 30. 
This has surpassed the past attendance and shows a good spirit of 
cooperation. 

Each church is encouraged to attend and participate in your 
association in the coming year. Each church is to be represented 
by the pastor and one Executive Committee member. The Commit- 
tee meets four times a year (once each quarter). 

The churches are to be praised for their contributions for the repairs 
to the parsonage. The money received, exceeded the estimated cost 
of repairs and the balance was used to do some other repairs that 
were needed. 

I appreciate the help of Vice-Moderator, Rev. Billy Joe Blevins for 
filling in for me when I couldn't attend.

ASHE BAPTIST ASSOCIATION YOUTH COUNCIL 

The Lord has tremendously blessed the work of the Ashe Baptist 
Youth Council! We again sponsored WITNESS from the Personal 
Evangelism Department of the Baptist State Convention. The 
WITNESS 1990 concerts were great, but more importantly there were 
14 professions of faith! The Youth Council also sponsored Kids' Day 
1990 which provided fun and fellowship and a program by the Clown 
Troupe from Bald Mountain and the Youth Group from Laurel Knob. 
Youth Night 1991 was held at Trinity Baptist Church with Evangelist 
Neal Hatfield delivering a straightforward message to the youth. 

The Youth Council and the Evangelism Committee worked 
together for the Rick Gage Crusade. I thank God for all that was 
accomplished: the involvement of other Bible-believing churches out- 
side of the Association; the response of the youth and their continu- 
ing enthusiasm; but most of all for every precious soul that was sav- 
ed. During the Crusade, we saw 354 professions of faith and 244 other 
decisions. I thank you for your prayers and financial support, but most 
of all-Praise the Lord!! 

As a direct result of the Crusade, I had the opportunity to work with 
a group of teens to form an ecumenical organization called Winning 
With Jesus. This organization was dependent upon the teens 
themselves for leadership. I served only in an advisory capacity. Win- 
ning With Jesus sponsored the fourth Saturday night programs at 
the Ashe County Teen Center from November of 1990 through June 
1991. As a result of this outreach, there were two professions of faith. 

Although, I think these programs were revelant to the needs of 
the teens of Ashe County and were meeting a long neglected need, 
Winning With Jesus will no longer sponsor programs at the Teen 
Center. This decision was based on the dismal financial support from 
the churches of the county and the lack of participation from the 
youth. 

Pray for the Youth Council as we attempt to meet the needs of 
youth and equip the churches to minister more effectively to youth. 
Pray that God will continue to bless as we provide activities and share 
the Gospel of Jesus Christ with young people.

CHRISTIAN ACTION LEAGUE 

The Christian Action League is a voluntary organization composed 
of concerned citizens brought together to oppose those destructive 
influences in society which contribute to the low level of public morali- 
ty existing today. The League is dedicated to strengthening laws 



120 ASHE BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 



against gambling, alcohol, and commercialized vice in its many 
forms while emphasizing the basic importance of spiritual and moral 
values to the development and growth of the individual, the local 
community and the nation as a whole. 

The Christian Action League of Ashe County is concerned with 
the growing support for government sponsored gambling in North 
Carolina. The League urges Christians to oppose a state lottery and 
para-mutual gambling in our state because it is destructive of families 
and opens the door for organized crime to enter our state. 

The Christian Action League of Ashe County in association with 
the North Carolina League urges individuals and churches in our 
county to inform public officials of or opposition to the sale of 
beverage alcohol and liquors in North Carolina and to voice our con- 
cern with efforts to legalize para-mutual gambling in our state. Ad- 
ditional goals and objectives for 1991-1992 include the following: 

1. To make Christians aware of the influence of media on our 
lives. 

2. To eliminate alcoholic advertisements in the media. 

3. To prohibit the sale of beer and wine through a referendum. 

4. To lobby against state sponsored gambling. 

To attain these goals, we need the active cooperation of all those 
individuals who wish to promote Christian values in our community. 

We invite all like-minded citizens to join us in furthering the course 
of civic and social righteousness and promoting the highest stan- 
dards of Christian morality in the lives of our people.

BAPTIST RETIREMENT HOMES 
of North Carolina 

1991 Making Life For Older Adults The Best of Times 

The Baptist Retirement Homes of North Carolina, Inc., operates 
four residential facilities for Older Adults around the State - the 
Albemarle Baptist Home in .the Southern Piedmont, the Western 
North Carolina Baptist Home in Asheville, the Hamilton Baptist 
Home in Eastern North Carolina, and the Brookridge Retirement 
Community in Winston-Salem. 

In Asheville, 1991 began with a great deal of excitement. After 
more than five years of trying to receive state approval to build a 
nursing care bed addition, the Baptist Retirement Homes was award- 
ed a Certificate of Need for 100 medi-caid certified nursing care beds 
for its Western North Carolina Baptist Home on Richmond Hill in 
Northwest Asheville. Currently the only nursing care provided by the 



ASHE BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 121 



Baptist Retirement Homes is the 85 bed nursing care unit at the 
Brookridge Retirement Community in Winston-Salem. The addition 
of 100 medicaid certified beds will mean that quality nursing care 
can be offered to Western North Carolina Baptists regardless of their 
ability to pay for the institutional services that they need. 

The 39,000 square foot addition will cost approximately $2.8 
million. At the present time the Baptist Retirement Homes has rais- 
ed approximately $2 million of the $2.8 million needed to make this 
long hoped for dream a reality. Baptists across Western North 
Carolina are being urged to help Baptist Retirement Homes meet 
the financial challenge of building this new unit on Richmond Hill. 

In Winston-Salem, the Brookridge Retirement Community com- 
pleted its second year of operation. Under the leadership of a well- 
trained and committed Christian staff, the Brookridge Retirement 
Community's Independent Living area and Health Care Unit are con- 
sidered among the finest in the State. 

In Albermarle and Hamilton, Assisted Living care is provided to 
Older Adults in residential settings. The Albemarle and Hamilton 
facilities offer quality care to Older Adults regardless of their ability 
to pay for the cost of the care they receive... a service unmatched 
by any other church related long-term care institution in this state. 

Please support our ministry with your prayers and financial 
resources. Help us make life for Baptist Older Adults... The Best of 
Times!

BAPTIST CHILDREN'S HOMES REPORT 

For an institution that's 106 years old, Baptist Children's Homes 
of North Carolina (BCH) looks strongly to the future! Three pillars 
that uphold that futuristic foundation are: 1. The return of the 
Thanksgiving Offering beginning in November 1991; 2. The 
success of our "Give a child a chance!" financial campaign, 
and 3. Baptists' continued support of BCH through the 
Cooperative Program. 

This financial undergirding made it possible for BCH to serve more 
than 1,200 children and families last year through facilities at 13 
locations across the state. Because Baptists cared enough to give, 
residents like Lynn will go to Wingate College this fall; Chris 
graduated from UNC-Chapel Hill; Jennifer is in her second year at 
Haywood Community College and Mark earned a football scholar- 
ship to North Carolina A&T. Each of these lives proceeds on firm 
footing because Baptist Children's Homes was there paved their 
pathway. 



122 ASHE BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 



Most BCH residents come from dysfunctional families where a single 
parent, most often a mother, simply is unable to care for her children. 
Her frustration with life leads to limitless freedom for the children, 
which leads to troubling behavior. Physical abuse, divorce, alcohol, 
drugs and truancy mark their young lives. 

Baptist Children's Homes provides a safe environment where 
children learn to name their problems and address them to change 
behavior. At the same time, willing family members also are address- 
ing their problems with the help of BCH social workers. In many 
cases, children and families are restored. 

BCH's "Give a child a chance!" campaign is raising $11 million 
over three years to expand Cameron Boys Camp, boost general 
operating income and increase endowment. Gifts and pledges 
through July totaled $9.3 million and response across the state has 
been overwhelming and heart gratifying. 

Last year Baptist Men of North Carolina helped construct the new 
Tommy and Jeanie Eller Chuckwagon at Cameron Boys Camp that 
was dedicated May 19. 

BCH celebrated this spring the 20th anniversary of the founding 
of Broyhill Home, our western-most campus, in Waynesville/ Clyde. 
With the hlep of J.E. Broyhill and his family, the home was opened 
in 1971 on 91 hilly acres. It has capacity for 48 children in group 
care and for eight girls in emergency care. 

' In August 1990 BCH began the Gregg Children's Center for before 
and after school care. The Davidson County program offers security 
to children of working couples, who now don't have to go home to 
empty houses. 

Children's hopes the world over have been bolstered by the 1991 
return of the Thanksgiving Offering voted by messengers to the 1989 
state convention. While suffering through its 13-year absence, BCH 
lost more than $2 million in potential gifts. Our goal this year is 
$500,000. Because of a partnership established in December with 
the Baptist Children's Homes of Sao Paulo, Brazil, BCH-North 
Carolina will donate 10 percent of everything it receives over the 
$500,000 goal for work in that desperately needy land. 

In August 1990, BCH signed an agreement with Gaston County 
Department of Social Services to operate two emergency care homes 
owned by the county. That raises to seven the number of emergency 
care homes BCH operates. Emergency care, in which a child at risk 
of abuse or neglect can receive shelter right away, is the service most 
in demand throughout the state. Children stay a maximum of 60 days 
while BCH works with the custodian to determine a long-term plan 
of care. 

The Cooperative Program continues to anchor our budget 
planning from the churches. We urge renewed commitment to 



ASHE BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 123 

cooperative giving among our North Carolina churches. It is essen- 
tial, not only for us, but for the entire missions enterprise built 
painstakingly for a century and a half. Baptist Children's Homes 
would seriously jeopardize our ability to care for children. 

Baptist Children's Homes has a 106-year history. But its history 
is just the knot that ties it to a boundless, unbroken ribbon of pro- 
mise that stretches beyond the future to wrap children and families 
with eternal blessings. 

BAPTIST COLLEGE REPORT 

A "new-old" event is about to take place in North Carolina Bap- 
tist life: A Special Committee! 

From time to time we Baptists feel the need to take a hard look 
at ourselves. We do that through the time-honored practice of ask- 
ing trusted people to serve on a committee for a year, sometimes 
two. In 1956, for example, "The Committee of Twenty-Five" began 
a comprehensive study which eventually embraced all aspects of 
North Carolina Baptist life. That committee reported to a special 
session of the Baptist State Convention called for that purpose on 
May 5-6, 1959. Again, "The Committee of Twenty," appointed in 
1967, worked for two years before presenting its comprehensive fin- 
dings and recommendations to the Convention in November of 1969. 
Both of these committees provided clarity and guidance for North 
Carolina Baptists which endured for many years. 

New times call for a fresh look at ourselves. The "new times" which 
have taken shape in the Southern Baptist Convention since 1979 
have particular relevance for institutions, agencies, their trustees and 
the Convention. North Carolina Baptist institutions and agencies 
have rendered distinguished Christian service for a total of 1,108 
years! New times call for a new look by a competent special 
committee. 

In May the General Board approved a 17-member "Institutions 
Relations Committee." Lamar Brooks, Wilmington, is chairman. 
Other members are: Jean P. Abernethy, Marion; Dot Allrd, Gastonia; 
Curtis Lee Barbery, Bennett; Harold Bennett, Boone; Don Bolden, 
Burlington; Caralie Brown, Raleigh; Kathryn H. Hamrick, Shelby; 
John H. Hewett, Asheville; Milton A. Hollifield, Jr., Stanley; John 
M. Hough, Jr., Salisbury; James H. Johnson, Candler; Robert B. 
Poole, Elizabeth City; George W. Pullium, Jr., Knightdale; Hobart 
Smith, Charlotte; A. Eugene Warren, Charlotte; J.L. Wilson, 
Winston-Salem. Their report is due in November, 1992. 

The "new-old" way of study and thought is the North Carolina Bap- 
tist, tried-and-true way to confront changing times. We thank these 
17 good men and women who will help us to shape the future together 
in harmony. They request and deserve our fervent prayers.

Protection is an instinct each adult has toward his spouse and 
children. 

It hurts to see a child fall or a spouce passed over for a promotion. 
We want to shield loved ones from the hurts of everyday life. 

That kind of protection is impossible, but there is financial protec- 
tion available to ministers that can provide a life-saving margin for 
his family in the event of his disability or death. 

The good news is it costs him nothing if he is an eligible partici- 
pant in the Church Annuity Plan. 

The Protection Section of the Church Annuity Plan is provided by 
the state convention, and includes several benefits. 

These benefits can mean receiving: 

- up to $67,500 in special survivor benefits if you die prior to 
retirement, or while receiving a disability benefit. 

- up to $300 a month if you become disabled and unable to per- 
form any gainful employment due to physical or mental incapacity. 

Additionally, up to $35 each month can be credited to your retire- 
ment income account during your disability and your survivor benefits 
will remain. 

This valuable family protection is funded from Cooperative Pro- 
gram dollars that match dollars contributed to your account by you 
and your church. 

"The Church Annuity Plan offers significant up-front family pro- 
tection that leaves your dollars free to build your retirement securi- 
ty. It is an important benefit that many ministers overlook in the 
retirement plan," Frank Schwall, senior vice president of Member 
Services. 

The average annuitant in North Carolina receives $287.43 per 
month, up from $234 last year. 

North Carolina has 3,396 members making contributions to An- 
nuity Board retirement plans. 

It is exciting to think about what has been done to help ministers 
retire with dignity and to have protection as they plan for retirement. 
Strong efforts have been made to make all of our churches (and 
ministers) aware of the opportunities and the need to act on them. 

But there is still much to be done! Consider these facts: 

- small contributions make the annuitant's benefits small: 
In North Carolina 

185 receive less than $50 
482 receive less than $100 
1041 receive less than $200 
1338 receive less than $300 
There is a GREAT challenge still before us to help ministers prepare 
for the future and to help churches be responsible employers.

Carolina, you can call or write:

NORTH CAROLINA BAPTIST HOSPITAL 
REPORT 

The year 1991 is significant in the history of Baptist Hospital - it 
marks the 50th anniversary of its entering a partnership with the 
Bowman Gray School of Medicine of Wake Forest University, to form 
one of the 126 academic medical centers in the nation. Appropriate 
events have been planned to celebrate this anniversary. 

This partnership makes it possible for Baptist Hospital to offer it's 
patients the most advance technology for diagnosing and treating 
their health problems. For example, ours is one of 15 medical centers 
in the nation involved in clinical trials of a new coronary laser which 
vaporizes plaque in blocked coronary arteries. We are one of five 
centers in the U.S. conducting clinical trials in stereotactic 
radiosurgery, a procedure in which high-energy beams of radiation 
from a linear accelerator are focused by computers on brain tumors 
and lesions to destroy them. This procedure can be done on an out- 
patient basis. We are one of 24 Comprehensive Cancer Centers in 
the nation. We are the designated organ procurement agency for nor- 
thwest North Carolina, and we recently received approval to begin 
performing pancreatic transplants this year. Early in 1992, we ex- 
pect to open our new Center for Positron Emission Tomography, one 
of the most advanced readiological services which is capable of 
measuring the chemical structure of the body. This new diagnostic 
procedure promises to make possible earlier detection, and hence, 
earlier treatment of tumors, hopefully, improving the outcome of the 
treatment. 

During the past year, the hospital admitted approximately 22,000 
patients, and almost 400,000 persons were treated through the 
various outpatient services of the Medical Center. These patients 
came from most counties in North Carolina, from 32 other states, 
and from several other countries. 

During the past year, Baptist Hospital was re-accredited by the 
Joint Commission on Accredition of Health Care Organizations, and 
the survey team which visited our institution ranked it in the top 10 
percent of hospitals in the nation. Also, according to a recent report 
from the North Carolina Medical Database Commission, average 
charges for care at Baptist Hospital are 10 percent below the average 
charges for similar diagnoses in hospitals statewide, and substan- 
tially lower than charges in the other North Carolina academic 
medical centers. 

The Pastoral Care Department, which is funded in part through 
the Cooperative Program, provided Clinical Pastoral Education to 
42 students during the past year. The Pastoral Care staff provided 
more than 54,000 specific ministries to hospital patients, family 
members, and staff. And, the counseling division provided over 
21,700 counseling sessions. The Professional staff of the Pastoral 
Care Department continues to respond to requests for help from chur- 
ches in conflict, from pastors and their families across the state.

For the first time since 1978, a Mother's Day offering exclusively 
for Baptist Hospital Benevolent Care was received in North Carolina 
Baptist Churches. At the time this report is being written, results 
of the Mother's Day offering appear to be very favorable. The staff 
and patients at Baptist Hospital are profoundly grateful to North 
Carolina Baptists for this support.

NORTH CAROLINA BAPTIST FOUNDATION, INC. 
ANNUAL REPORT 

The Board of Directors and the staff of the North Carolina Baptist 
Foundation are committed to effective leadership in generating in- 
creased perpetual financial support of Baptist causes throughout the 
state, nation and world. With assets approximately $27 million 
(market value) at the end of the 1990 fiscal year, the income distribu- 
tion to Baptist causes is significant each year. 

Typically, assets are either held as endowments paying interest 
income in perpetuity to named Baptist causes, or they are held in 
trust with current income being paid to individuals and future income 
being paid to Baptist causes in perpetuity. 

Earned income distributed to Baptist institutions and mission 
causes during fiscal year of 1990 $647,180 

Earned income distributed to individuals with Baptist causes nam- 
ed as charitable remainderman during fiscal year of 1990.... $686, 124 

The staff of the Foundation consists of seven full time employees 
and two persons who provide part-time service in accounting and 
legal services. The servicing of individual accounts requires con- 
tinuous contact with trustors, donors and those designating gifts 
through Wills. The increased number of requests for assistance in 
seminars and conferences by churches, associations, and individuals 
has made part-time assistance necessary in regions of the state some 
distance from the office. 

There are continual improvements being made in available 
charitable estate planning computer software, constant changes in 
state and federal regulations which assistance to serve the ever in- 
creasing needs of both the devlopment staffs of our institutions and 
the individuals utilizing the Foundations services. The Foundations 
continues to provide for these needs to maximize the growth in finan- 
cial support for Baptist causes. 

In 1990, the Foundation moved into a new home. The 6,000 square 
foot office building was constructed from gifts from individuals and 
is located on property provided by the Baptist State Convention next 



ASHE BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 127 



to the Baptist Building in Cary. The new facility was occupied in 
February 1990 and provides much needed space for the work of staff 
as well as for conference and meetings. Baptist groups are invited 
to use the meeting rooms when in the Raleigh/Cary area. We ex- 
tend an invitation to church groups to call and arrange a visit to the 
newest building used for the Lord's service by North Carolina 
Baptists.

CHURCH MUSIC REPORT 

Greetings to Ashe County Baptists. May I share with you concer- 
ning music in our churches? Acording to my Biblical Cyclopedic In- 
dex, the Bible lists at least eight areas of religious activities in which 
music is used. Two areas of influence on our well-being are listed. 
No less than fourteen musical instruments are named. 

Under the topic of "Singing," five occasions for singing are listed. 
Five different areas, as the "manner with which we sing," is outlin- 
ed, plus four "objects of singing." 

Ephesians 5:19 encourages us to "sing to the Lord." Psalm 27:6 
speaks of singing for "Joy to the Lord." Jeremiah 31:7 says, "I will 
sing with the Spirit —and with the understanding." Colossians 3:16 
says, "Singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord." This passage 
also tells us to sing "hymns" and "spiritual" songs. 

We are very careful about the kind of message that come from our 
pulpits, and we should be just as careful about the kind that comes 
from our choir and our congregational singing. 

What kind of message are we projecting to our people through our 
music? Does it honor God and exalt Jesus Christ as Saviour or does 
it glorify and pay homage to mankind? 

Fellow choir leaders, in my opinion, one of our most needed areas 
of prayer in our church-life today is with us as we select the music 
to be used in our services. Let's take stock now and then to see if 
we're leading our people to worship the Living Christ, or merely enter- 
taining them.

CHRISTIAN ACTION LEAGUE OF NORTH CAROLINA, Inc. 

This has been a most eventful year for the cause of Applied 
Christianity. 

With North Carolina facing a 1.1 billion dollar shortfall and with 
news accounts stating that citizens from North Carolina are spen- 
ding 100 million dollars annually in the Virginia lottery, it appeared 
almost inevitable that a lottery bill would pass the 1991 legislative 
session. 

In addition to the economic factors, the gambling industry had 13 
lobbyists working the halls of the Legislature daily promoting lot- 
tery legislation. 

Even though lottery legislation passed the Senate, it was quite evi- 
dent that the lottery lobbyists could not line up enough votes to get 
the measure through the House of Representatives. Lottery sup- 
porters did not push for a vote, for they knew that the legislation 
would be dead. Therefore, the proposal will be eligibile to be con- 
sidered in the next legislative session when it convenes in June, 1992. 

Between now and then, it is of utmost importance that you secure 
a commitment from your representatives in the North Carolina House 
to oppose state-sponsored gambling. The Senate will not be voting 
on the lottery in 1992 because it has already passed that body. 

Key lottery supporters were Senator Ken Royall (D-Durham), 
Senator George Daniels (D-Caswell), Representative David Redwine 
(D-Brunswick), Representative Joe Mavretic (D-Edgecombe), 
Representative Robert Hunter (D-McDowell) and Representative 
Frank Rhodes (R-Forsyth). 

Opponents of the legislation were led by Governor Jim Martin, 
Lieutenant Governor Jim Gardner, Senate President Pro-Tern Hen- 
son Barnes (D-Wayne), and Speaker of the House Dan Blue 
(D-Wake). 

While we were successful in side-tracking lottery legislation, the 
Legislature refused to enact the following proposals: 

1. PARENTAL CONSENT... North Carolina remains one of the few 
states in the nation that allows a minor to receive an abortion without 
parental consent. Legislation to enact parental consent passed the 
House, but died in the Senate. 

2. DRUNK DRIVING... The House passed legislations that would 
change the alcohol blood level from .1 to .08 as the breathalyzer 
standard for Driving- While-Impaired. The Senate refused to act on 
this proposal. 

3. OPEN CONTAINERS OF ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES IN 
MOTOR VEHICLES... It is ironic that an open LIQUOR bottle is pro- 
hibited in a motor vehicle, yet there is no limit to the number of open 
beer containers allowed in a motor vehicle. Highway safety 
authorities confirm that a large majority of the drivers charged with 



1 30 ASHE BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 



Driving-While-Impaired are beer drinkers. N.C. Highway Patrol of- 
ficials endorsed the open container legislation, but it got "hung up" 
in a House committee. 

4. TEEN-AGE PREGNANCIES... In order to address this grow- 
ing problem, legislation was introduced to require sexual abstinence 
instruction to be a part of the curriculum of our public schools. (Such 
instruction has been very successful in reducing teen-age pregnan- 
cies in other areas of our country.) However, such a program was 
opposed by our N.C. Department of Public Instruction. Education 
officials charged that such legislation would be imposing a standard 
of morality upon our youth. The measure simply stated: "The State 
Board of Education shall adopt rules to provide that the public school 
curriculum shall include instruction, in appropriate grades and 
classes, that abstinence from sexual activity outside of marriage is 
the expected standard for all school-age children, that abstinence 
from sexual activity is the only certain means of avoiding out-of- 
wedlock pregnancy, sexually transmitted diseases, including AIDS, 
and other associated health problems; and that a mutally faithful 
monogamous relationship in the ocntext of marriage is the best 
lifelong means of avoiding sexually transmitted diseases, including 
AIDS." 

5. ABORTION FUND... North Carolina is the only Southeastern 
state that used state tax funds for medically unnecessary abortions. 
Some $400,000 of state tax funds have been budgeted by the state 
legislature to pay for these elective abortions. Therefore, we are de- 
nying thousands of babies right here in North Carolina their con- 
stitutional right of LIFE, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. 

How can we turn the tide on these important moral issues? It will 
occur when North Carolina Baptists and other Christians are will- 
ing to become actively and publicly involved in upholding our Judeo- 
Christian moral standards. It is not enough to wring our hands and 
just talk about problems. We need not cry out publicly and act against 
sin. Baptists need to be informed about the stands taken on these 
issues by those who are running for public office, and then VOTE 
for those who reflect our standards. 

In addition to a demanding legislative session, the Christian Ac- 
tion League has successfully assisted several counties and 
municipalities in liquor, beer, and wine referendums. 

Good Government Seminars were conducted in the Asheville and 
Wilmington areas, at which some of the above issues were addressed. 

Nationally recognized authorities came to share their expertise on 
the issues of gambling and family matters. These include Dr. Paul 
Cameron, Chairman of the Family Research Institute, Washington, 
D.C.; Austin McGuigan, former State's Attorney for Connecticut, and 
Bill Swindell, National Field Director, American Family Association, 
Tupelo, Mississippi. 

We praise God for your prayers and financial support as we join 
in addressing the moral and ethical issues facing our society. 

Local Representative, Paul Coffey

CHRISTIAN LIFE COMMISSION 
1991 Annual Report 

The Southern Baptist Convention has charged the Christian Life 
Commission with the responsibility of assisting Southern Baptists 
in understanding the moral demands of the Gospel and helping them 
apply the principles of the Christian faith to moral and social pro- 
blems. One of the Commission's paramount tasks is to challenge 
and energize Southern Baptists to engage our culture through in- 
formed and committed involvement with moral, social and public 
policy issues. During the past 12 months, the Commission has engag- 
ed in a series of programs and activities designed to help Southern 
Baptists apply Christian truths in family life, citizenship, race rela- 
tions, drug abuse, world hunger, religious liberty and a host of other 
moral and public policy concerns. 

One of the Commission's most challenging and exciting 
assignments during the past year has been responding to Conven- 
tion action in 1990 which expanded the Commission's program 
assignment to include religous liberty. The Commission has long had 
the responsibility of challenging Southern Baptists to understand 
their responsibility as Jesus' disciples to be salt and light on society. 
It has proven to be very helpful to also have the freedom, under its 
expanded program assignment, to help Southern Baptists unders- 
tand their historic right to be involved as citizens in public policy 
issues faced by our nation. 

The Commission continued its long-standing efforts to work closely 
with state Baptist conventions with full-time and part-time Christian 
ethics workers and active Christian Life Committees and with 
associational and local church Christian Life Committees. At the na- 
tional level, the Commission gave ongoing attention to development 
of closer working relationships with Christian ethics departments of 
the six Southern Baptist theological seminaries. 

During the past year, the Commission provided support materials 
to Southern Baptists for observance in six special emphasis Sundays 
related to Christian ethics on the denominational calendar. These 
are Sanctity of Human Life Sunday, Race Relations Sunday, Alcohol 
and Drug Abuse Prevention Sunday, Christian Citizenship Sunday, 
Day of Prayer for World Peace and World Hunger Day. Support 
materials provided in these areas by the Commission included special 
themes, topics, art work, photographs, posters, and bulletin inserts. 

Frequent news releases, photographs, issue analysis articles, guest 
editorials and special features have been used by Baptist Press, Bap- 
tist Bulletin Service, Baptist state papers and secular print and elec- 
tronic media to support the Commission's assignment of "helping 
changed people change the world." 

Through its Washington, D.C. office, opened in 1987 at the Con- 
vention's request, the Commission played an increasing role in moral 



1 32 ASHE BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 

leadership in the nation's capital. Program staff based in Washington 
include the Director of Government Relations, the Director of Media 
and News Informational-Baptist Press Reporter and the General 
Counsel-Director of Christian Citizenship and Religious Liberty Con- 
cerns. Tripling of Washington office staff in the past year has enchanc- 
ed greatly the Commission's ability to fulfill the portion of its pro- 
gram statement which calls on the Commission to "bring to bear 
Baptist statements consent Southern Baptist insight for considera- 
tion in the planning of Federal government programs on children and 
youth, aging, housing, employment, public health and other mat- 
ters pertaining to social welfare." During the year, the Washington 
and Nashville staffs have worked diligently to share with Congress 
and the White House numerous convictions and concerns of Southern 
Baptists. Commission staff have been active in corresponding and 
meeting with members of the Legislative and Executive branches of 
Federal government concerning areas of Southern Baptist concern. 

The Commission played a major role in arranging a meeting with 
the President, his chief of staff and senior advisors during which the 
Commission's Executive Director and the Convention's President 
were able, in concert with a small group of other evangelical leaders, 
to present their concerns directly to the President in several areas 
including homosexuality, abortion issues and federal funding of 
sacrilegious and obscene art. Other issues discussed included child 
care legislation and the Persian Gulf crisis. The Executive Director 
also met with the President and the Attorney General concerning the 
issue of vigorous prosecution of child pornography and obscenity by 
the U.S. Justice Department. 

The Commission has also been active during the past year in 
leading a strong coalition of numerous groups supporting both the 
Sensible Advertising and Family Education Act and former Surgeon 
General Everett Koop's intiatives on tax increase on beer, alcohol 
and wine. Abortion, drug abuse and pornography are among other 
issues with which the Commission staff has been involved through 
the Washington office. The Commission remains particularly con- 
cerned about serious threats to religious liberty posed by recent 
Supreme Court decisions and worked closely with a coalition of 
groups endeavoring to remedy the threat both through legislation 
and judicial action. The Commission also continued to pursue fulfill- 
ment of its program statement through filing amicus curiae "friend 
of the court" briefs in cases involving abortion, pornography and 
religious liberty. 

The Commission's 1991 annual national seminar in Forth Worth, 
Texas was entitled "Christians and the Environment: Finding a 
Biblical Balance Between Idolatry and Irresponsibility." The program 
combined interpretive biblical themes with addresses such as "A 



ASHE BAPTIST ASSOCIA TION 133 

Biblical Theology of Ecology," "A Biblical Ethic of Ecology," 
"Humanistic and New Age Ideas on Modern Environmental 
Movements," "How a Local Church Can Begin A Recycling Pro- 
gram," and "Biblical Imperatives on Stewardship of God's Creation." 

The Commission continued its long-standing leadership in the field 
of race relations and provided leadership in the National Coalition 
Against Pornography and during Bible Preaching-Church Ad- 
ministration Weeks and National Student Weeks at Ridgecrest and 
Glorieta. Commission staff also served as resource persons in events 
held in numerous state conventions and for other Southern Baptist 
agencies and entities. 

The Commission continued its responsibility assigned by the Con- 
vention for education and action related to the issue of hunger. Com- 
mission staff produced the 1990-1991 World Hunger Awareness/ Ac- 
tion Guide entitled Endangered Earth: Helping Southern Bap- 
tists Feed A Hungry World. This guide was mailed to every church 
in the Convention to encourage and to support the observance of 
World Hunger Day. 

The Commission continued to focus attention on an old concern 
about the dangers of alcohol and drug abuse through the prepara- 
tion of material for the second annual Alcohol and Drug Abuse 
Prevention Sunday on the denomination's calendar. 

The circulation of LIGHT, the quarterly moral concerns journal 
of the Commission, grew to 72,000. 



WOMAN'S MISSIONARY UNION REPORT 

As I attend Witnessing, Missions and WMU Conferences in North 
Carolina; I truly believe missions will grow in our Ashe Baptist 
Association as WMU organizations strengthen, multiply and become 
more involved. 

A growing church needs an ongoing missions program to educate 
people about missions, involve them in doing and supporting mis- 
sions, and to equip them to grow in spiritual maturity. WMU can 
provide ongoing mission events and projects for the church; and op- 
portunities for individual and family involvement in missions. No 
church is too small or large to have a WMU. 

The emphasis of Woman's Missionary Union in 1991-1992 is CALL- 
ED and ACCOUNTABLE. Our Watchword matches the emphasis 
also, which was selected from Acts 1:8.* 

"Bur when the Holy Spirit comes upon you, you will be filled 
with power, and you will be witnesses for me in Jerusalem, in all of 
Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth." 

Every Christ-follower has been called, is being called, and will be 
called by the Holy Spirit of God to walk with Him and work with 
Him in distinct ways and places at specific periods in our lives. The 



1 34 ASHE BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 

strategy is summarized in Ephesians 2:10; "For we are his workman- 
ship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath 
before ordained (prepared) that we should walk in them." There it 
is in black and white in God's world: who we are, what we are, why 
we are. All the preparation is in place; ready for the places and faces 
to which He assigns us. 

But that is not all. We are accountable for those assignments. The 
Scriptures are filled with teachings on accountability. The parable 
of the talents in Romans 14:12 and in Luke 21:36 is one example 
of the many times God reminds us: When He calls for an assignment 
He also calls for an accounting. Oh, what beautiful words to have 
Him say to us, "Well done, thou good and faithful servant.' 

Are we guilty, and have to say "God called me, too; I did not 
follow." His call is an invitation to serve Him. We can say no, but 
the price is high. 

May the Lord's words in our watchword this year, come to pass 
in our lives and may we declare with vigor that all are called; the 
world is lost and time is urgent. May we be found faithful in follow- 
ing the call of God in the ministry and witness to which our Lord 
has assigned us. 

May I report to you, last year WMU in the Ashe Baptist Associa- 
tion had a 10% increase in membership and organizations over the 
year before. Old Fields WMU was recognized at our State Conven- 
tion as being an outstanding standard WMU. 

Welcome Home Baptist Church organized in July 1991 in all WMU 
organizations. I would like to welcome them and I am looking for- 
ward to working with them. 

I would like to ask the pastors and churches to support our efforts 
with prayers and support, also promotion as we seek to do missions 
in Ashe County. 

Respectfully Submitted, 
Ruth Calhoun 



DIRECTOR OF MISSIONS' ANNUAL REPORT 

God be praised for that which has been done by Him in the last 
year. These are not accomplishments of myself or of our Associa- 
tion, but of God Himself. God has used the foresight of the Youth 
Council and of the Evangelism committee, but God's Spirit has 
mightily moved to bring scores of young people to a saving knowlege 
of Jesus Christ during the last year. Following the Rick Gage 
Crusade, there has been a renewed evangelistic fervor in our midst. 
We have seen that there are not excuses for baptismless years. Men 
are still lost and God still saves all those who come to Him through 
Jesus Christ. Our job is the same - "Tell the Good News." 



ASHE BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 135 



As far as what I have done since April 15, most has been 
"maintenance" as I learn a very demanding job. I trust you will 
observe this saying, "Please be patient God isn't finished with me 
yet." My goal is to "Do missions" as well as promote and coordinate 
missions. The following are lists of my "public" activities, but "of- 
fice" activities have been more demanding than any of these.

EVANGELISM REPORT 

The evangelistic priority of the church is mandated by Jesus in 
Matthew 28: 19-20. There He says to His disciples, "Go ye therefore, 
and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and 
of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost." Certainly, this confirms to us 
the absolute necessity of doing evangelism. It is not an option but 
a command. 

Our association witnessed one of the greatest years in evangelistic 
harvesting that it has seen in some time. This was the result of God's 
blessing upon our joint efforts in the Rick Gage Crusade during the 
Fall of 1990. In that four night crusade we saw 354 professions of 
faith in Jesus Christ and 244 other decisions. It was an inspiring time 
of harvest evangelism. As a result our churches baptized a total of 
292 persons during the past year. 

However, there is still much work to be done. We must be busy 
winning our communities for Christ through personal evangelism. 
If each Christian in our churches would win one lost soul to Christ 
per year we would soon win our country to Christ. Let us pray and 
work that it may be so. We give God all the praise and glory for what

has been done and prayerfully look forward to what may be ac- 
complished through His power and our joint efforts.

PREACHERS' CONFERENCE 

The Preachers' Conference of the Ashe Baptist Association meets 
on the second Saturday of each month. The conference continues 
to be a blessing to those who attend. Each month, we hear a message 
from God's word and have the opportunity to fellowship with one 
another, and share our needs, prayer requests and victories. 

The Preachers' Conference is open to all who wish to attend — 
pastors, preachers not currently serving as pastors, and laypeople. 
I encourage the pastors of the Ashe Baptist Association to become 
more actively involved in the Preachers' Conference. God will bless 
you through the preaching of His Word and fellowship with other 
believers.

BAPTIST CAMP REPORT 

Our camp, located on the Paul Goodman road in the Fleetwood 
community, continues to be a blessing to our people across thr 
association. Church groups from outside our association use our 
facility when not in use by our churches. Contributions as follows: 

(1) Local contributions $3,799.97 

(2) Individual sister churches and other assoc $856.22 

The camp committee is made up of nine (9) members of whom 

three (3) are ministers. Members are elected for a three (3) year term 
and rotate off, thus three (3) new members are elected each year. 

Work days are being scheduled each spring and fall. We ask each 
church to participate, thus helping with the upkeep of the camp. 

Has your church used the camp this year? We encourage each 
church to become involved in the use of the camp. The building is 
winterized and is useable all seasons of the year. 

To use the campground, call the associational office at (919) 
246-5631 and book the time you want to have your church there.

DISCIPLESHIP TRAINING REPORT 

Discipleship Training in North Carolina saw an increase this past 
year from October 1989 to October 1990. The enrollment of the 
previous year was 133,199 and this past year was 155,426, an in- 
crease of 22,227 people. We in Discipleship Training rejoice and are 
thrilled. 

Does Discipleship Training make a difference? This comparison 
of churches with and churches without Discipleship Training reveals 
that churches with Discipleship Training excell in three major areas, 
Sunday School enrollment, baptisms, and Cooperative Program giv- 
ing. In fact, churches with Discipleship Training Programs excell in 
every size category. 

The purpose of Discipleship Training is to train Christians in 
discipleship, ministry, and leadership. 

Every Christian has a limitless capacity for spiritual growth. The 
church needs to provide Discipleship Training for every member from 
the youngest to the oldest. Discipleship Training is the best way to 
change the world. 

May God bless you richly as you take seriously the mandate to 
make disciples of all nations.

Mrs. Gwendolyn Elliott 



STEWARDSHIP REPORT (Cooperative Program) 

From my observation, The Cooperative Program is seen from at 
least 3 perspectives. There is the perspective of the "Sacred Cow." 
This elevates a method of giving beyond what it is intended to be, 
and produces a kind of elitism, which looks down upon Christian 
brothers who disagree in methodology. 

There is the perspective of the Sure Servant. The Cooperative Pro- 
gram is not an animal, to be worshipped or to be slain. It is a ser- 
vant to be used. The right to designate is part of our heritage, and 
no-one should feel ostracized for doing so. On the other hand, our 
strength as a "people on mission" depends upon our doing missions 
together, for the Baptist Way is the "Way of Freedom" and the "Way 
of Cooperation."

BROTHERHOOD REPORT 

Baptists are missionary in their very Name, "Missionary Baptists." 
We believe that the Commission of our Lord makes us responsible 
to do and teach missions. (Mt. 28:18-20) This commission is very 
inclusive. It includes all the world-Jerusalem (local missions), Judea 
(State Missions), Samaria (Home Missions), and unto the uttermost 
part of the earth (Foreign Missions). (Acts 1:8) 

It includes all the work-Evangelism (teach all nations), Enlistment 
(baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of 
the Holy Ghost), and Edification (teaching them to observe all that 
I have commanded you) (Mt. 28:19, 20a) 

It includes all the wonder-Power (All power is given unto me in 
Heaven and in earth), and Presence (Lo, I am with you always even 
unto the end of the world). (Mt. 28:18b, 20c) 

Now, concerning Brotherhood, are men and boys included among 
those who are to do and teach (or be taught) missions? Of course, 
they are! Therefore the organization known as "Brotherhood" is need- 
ed in every church for the first 2 of its tasks are: (1) Teach missions 
to all men, and boys, (2) Lead all men, young men and boys to par- 
ticipate in mission activities. 

Call me at 877-4987 if I can assist you in establishing a 
brotherhood organization or strengthening the present one.

William Fairchild 



RESOLUTIONS COMMITTEE REPORT 

Be it therefore resolved that we the messengers of the one hun- 
dred fifth annual meeting of the Ashe Baptist Association express 
our appreciation to the Friendly Grove and Grassy Creek churches 
for providing our meeting places; also to the ministers, lay persons 
and to these congregations for preparing and serving such delicious 
meals. 

Be it further resolved that we extend our thanks to those who serve 
as leaders in preparing the agenda, book of reports and meaningful 
worship throughout the session; namely, our Director of Missions, 
Rev. Jack Pugh; Secretary, Mrs. Jeannie McNeill, and Mrs. Peggy 
Powers for her help; Moderator and Vice Moderator, Rev. Ervel Jones 
and Rev. Billy J, Blevins; Music Director and Pianist, Mr. and Mrs. 
Dewey Campbell; and the various other state and local leaders who 
joined us in carrying out our mission. 

Be it further resolved that each church will continue to pray for 
our Director of Missions and back and support him as he serves as 
our new Director of Missions. 

Let us further resolve that we would, at all times, be in prayer for 
our sister churches. That we may be blessed, and work together under 
the leadership of the Holy Spirit.

IN MEMORIAM 

We have all heard it said that we will never be gathered together 
like this again. That is true, but for those who are redeemed, there 
will be a better gathering than this. Many are already "gathered 
home," and one day we will join them in An Associational Meeting 
that will never end. 

Let us take a moment now to reflect upon the lives of those who, 
in this past year, have outstripped us and gone on to glory.

THE 1992 ANNUAL 

OF THE 

ASHE BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 

IS DEDICATED TO THE MEMORY OF 



Zenith Roten 



Zenith Roten. This is a name that will live on for years to come 
in the hearts of many people. Zenith worked for over 50 years building 
a witness for her Lord and living an example worth admiring. 

Zenith was involved in the Ashe Baptist Association for years. 
She served on many committees and attended the yearly associa- 
tional gatherings faithfully. In 1991 she attended a seminar at 
Ridgecrest Baptist Assembly Conference Center, Black Mountain, 
NC. She was in much pain physically, but her spirit was well and 
able. 

Zenith truly supported the associational work. Her opinion was 
that the local church was a precious witness to the community, but 
when the local churches banded together to work as an association, 
so much more could be accomplished. 

Having been saved at Bible School at an early age, Zenith join- 
ed the Three Forks Missionary Baptist Church and remained there 
until she went home to be with the Lord on August 31, 1992. 

This wonderful, gracious woman left behind works that will bear 
fruit for many years. She was truly a 'good tree, bearing good fruit' 
as the Bible says. Her faithfulness in playing the piano, singing, 
teaching, witnessing, helping with Senior classes (and the Senior 
Games competition) and writing two books is just a small beginning 
to a host of works. 

Above all, we, as her family, will remember all her prayers for 
us, helpfulness, selfless giving (of time and energy), and mostly, her 
love. That kind of love can only grow from a house 'built on the rock,' 
Jesus Christ our Lord.

THE 1992 ANNUAL 

OF THE 

ASHE BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 

IS DEDICATED TO THE MEMORY OF 



Ralph Testerman 




Ralph Testerman was born July 12, 1919. He was called home 
to be with the Lord September 8th, 1992. He made a profession in 
Christ many years ago and joined Bristol Baptist Church and remain- 
ed a member until his death. He was ordained a deacon in August 
1956 and he was also a member of the Executive Committee and 
was faithful in all of his duties until his health failed. He loved his 
church and was devoted to it and attended many times when he was 
so weak in body he could hardly make it. His greatest love was sing- 
ing and he wrote many songs which were spiritually inspired. The 
chorus of one of his most beautiful songs is: 'Sacrifice and self-denial 
we must bear along the way, but in that land called Heaven, there 
will be a brighter day.' 

We are sure he is enjoying that brighter day now, for he is free 
from the suffering he bore for so long down here.

BUFFALO BAPTIST CHURCH 

A BRIEF HISTORY 

Buffalo Baptist Church was organized in 1869 in a log school 
house near the site of the present church building, Rev. Aaron 
Johnson was the first pastor, with at least 15 charter members. Dur- 
ing the first revival, which was in winter, there were 22 conversions. 
It was necessary to break 12 inches of ice on Buffalo Creek in order 
for the 22 converts to be baptised. 

Our church was received into the United Baptist Association on 
August 13, 1869, reporting "42 members and $1.50 in finances." In 
1872, Buffalo is shown as being a member of the Brushy Mountain 
Association, and then became a charter member of the Ashe and 
Alleghany Association, which was organized at Buffalo in 1886. 

Buffalo Baptist Church's Christian influence has been felt 
throughout the valley of the Buffalo Creek area. Our Christian con- 
cerns are not limited to the membership or along denominational 
lines. This approach to community mission work has resulted in an 
expanded influence. 

Through the focus of an active Woman's Missionary Union our 
community, state and foreign mission awareness has been expanded. 

Spiritual and physical growth of the church in recent years has 
been steady, and has brought about the need for an addition of a 
Fellowship Hall and Sunday School rooms. The renovation of the 
choir area, new carpeting, ceiling fans, and a paved parking lot are 
further indications of our meeting the needs of the church and 
community. 

Since the organization in 1869, the church has been served by 
the following pastors:

PLEASANT HOME BAPTIST CHURCH 

A BRIEF HISTORY (1870 - 1992) 



Pleasant Home Baptist Church was constituted in 1870 and built 
at the present place of worship in 1898. A new church was built in 
1952. The original church was built in a two story building where 
the Stanley Young home now stands. One story was Sussex School 
and the other story was Pleasant Home Baptist Church. The pre- 
sent church sits on land which was donated by Carolina Blevins. 

The first building was a wooden structure built in 1898, and the 
brick church was dedicated in 1956. A pine shelter was built in 1988 
and extended in 1991. 

George West is a member of Pleasant Home Baptist Church and 
was moderator of the Association for many years. In 1992, Mr. West 
donated one half acre of land for the church cemetery. 

The church has been blessed with many God fearing men and 
women. A few of the well known men that have gone to be with Jesus 
are as follows: Rev. Cicero Ashley, Rev. Roe Pasley, Sr., Rev. Frank 
Tucker, and Deacons John Halsey, Arthur Pasley, Sr., Virgil Phipps, 
Lester Thompson, Ed DeBord, and Lester Young. 

Some of the pastors which have served Pleasant Home Baptist 
Church are: 

Rev. Marvin (Billy) Smith, Rev. Earl Sheets (twice), Rev. Max 
Darnell, Rev. Leonard Blevins, Rev. David Testerman, Rev. Frank 
Tucker, Rev. Roe Pasley, Rev. Cicero Ashley, Rev. W.E. (Lester) 
Denny, Rev. E.A. Eller, and Rev. Wade (Buddy) Bare. Our present 
pastor, Rev. Marvin (Billy) Smith, is short in stature but full of the 
Holy Ghost. He began pastoring at Pleasant Home in 1988, and we 
hope he stays until the Lord takes us home. 

The church has grown from sixty-one members in 1898 to one 
hundred thirty-one member in 1992. 

They say you can't go home again, but whenever you have a 
chance, come home with us to Pleasant Home Baptist Church, 
Grassy Creek, NC. 

Respectfully Submitted, 
Mrs. Sharon Parsons, Mrs. Rachel Burgess

Addendum I - ARTICLES OF FAITH 

(The Baptist State Faith and Message as adopted 

by the Southern Baptist Convention in 1963) 

THE BAPTIST FAITH and MESSAGE 

A statement adopted by the Southern Baptist Convention 




Baptist are a people who profess a living faith. This faith is rooted 
and grounded in Jesus Christ who is "the same yesterday and today 
and forever." Therefore, the sole authority for faith and practice 
among Baptists is Jesus Christ whose will is revealed in the Holy 
Scriptures. 

A living faith must experience a growing understanding of truth 
and must be continually interpreted and related to the needs of each 
new generation. Throughout their history Baptist bodie's both large 
and small, have issued statements of faith which comprise a con- 
sensus of their beliefs. Such statements have never been regarded 
as complete, infallible statements of faith, nor as official creeds car- 
rying mandatory authority. Thus this generation of Southern Bap- 
tists is in historic succession of intent and purpose as it endeavors 
to state for its time and theological climate those articles of the Chris- 
tian faith which are most surely held among us. 

Baptists emphasize the soul's competency before God, freedom 
in religion, and the priesthood of the believer. However, this emphasis 
should not be interpreted to mean that there is an absence of certain 
definite doctrines that Baptists believe, cherish, and with which they 
have been and are now closely identified. 

It is the purpose of this statement of faith and message to set forth 
certain teachings which we believe. 

THE SCRIPTURES 

The Holy Bible was written by men divinely inspirited and is the 
record of God's revelation of Himself to many. It is a perfect treasure 
of divine instruction. It has God for its author, salvation for its end, 
and truth, without any mixture of error, for its matter. 

Ex. 24:4; Deut. 4:1-2; 17:19; Josh. 8:34; Psalm 19:7-10; 
119:11,89; 105; 140; It reveals the principles by which God judges 
us; and therefore is, and will remain to the end of the world, the true 
center of Christian union, and the supreme standard by which all 
human conduct, creeds, and religious opinions should be tried. The 



ASHE BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 87 



criterion by which the Bible is to be interpreted is Jesus Christ. 

Isa. 34:16; 40:8; Jer. 15:16; 36; Matt. 5:17-18; 22-29; Luke 
21;33;44-46; John 5:39; 16:13-15; 17:17 Acts 2:16 ff.; 17:11; Rom. 
15:4 16:25-26; 2 Tim. 3:15-17; Heb. 1:1-2; 4:12, 1 Peter 1:25; 2 Peter 
1:19-21. 

GOD 

There is one and only one living and true God. He is an intelligent, 
spiritual, and personal Being, the Creator, Redeemer, Preserver, and 
Ruler of the universe. God is infinite in holiness and all other perfec- 
tions. To Him we owe the highest love, reverence, and obedience. 
The eternal God reveals Himself to us a Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, 
with distinct personal attributes, but without division of nature, 
essence, or being. 

A. GOD THE FATHER 

God as Father reigns with providential care over His universe, His 
creatures and the flow of the stream of human history according to 
the purpose of His grace. He is all powerful, all loving, and all wise. 
God is Father in truth to those who become children of God through 
faith in Jesus Christ. He is fatherly in His attitude toward all men. 

Gen. 1:1; 2:7; Ex. 3:14; 6:2-3; 15:11 ff.; 20:1 ff.; Lev. 22:2; Deut. 
6:4; 32:6; 1 Chron. 29:10; Psalm 19:1-3; Isa. 43:3; 15:64:8 Jer. 
10:10; 17:13; Matt. 6:9 ff.; 7:11; 23:9, 28:19; Mark 1:9-11; John 
4:24; 5:26; 14:6-13; 17:1-8; Acts 1:7; Rom. 8:14-15;1 Cor. 8:6; Gal. 
4:6; Eph. 4:6; Col. 1:15; 1 Tim. 1:17; Heb. 11:6; 12:9; 1 Peter 1:17, 
1 John 5:7. 

B. GOD THE SON 

Christ is the eternal Son of God. In His incarnation as Jesus Christ 
he was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. 
Jesus perfectly revealed and did the will of God, taking upon Himself 
the demands and necessities of human nature and and identifying 
Himself completely with mankind yet without sin. He honored the 
divine law by His personal obedience, and in His death on the cross 
He made provision for the redemption of men from sin. He was rais- 
ed from the dead with a glorified body and appeared to His disciples 
as the person who was with them before His crucifixion. He ascend- 
ed into Heaven and is now exalted at the right hand of God where 
He is the One Mediator, partaking of the nature of God and of man, 
and in whose Person is effected the reconciliation between God and 
man. He will return in power and glory to judge the world and to 
consummate His redemptive mission. He now dwells in all believers 
as the living and ever present Lord.

C. GOD THE HOLY SPIRIT 

The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God. He inspired holy men of old

understand truth. He exalts Christ. He convicts of sin, of 
righteousness and of judgement. He calls men to the Saviour, and 
effects regeneration. He cultivates Christian characters, comforts 
believers, and bestows the spiritual gifts by which they serve God 
through His church. He seals the believers unto the day of final 
redemption. His presence in the Christian is the assurance of God 
to bring the believers into the fullness of the stature of Christ. He 
enlightens and empowers the believer and the church in worship, 
evangelism, and service.

MEN 

Man was created by the special act of God, in his own image, and 
is the crowning work of His creation. In the beginning man was in- 
nocent of sin and was endowed by His Creator with freedom of choice. 
By his free choice man sinned against God and brought sin into the 
human race. Through the temptation of Satan man transgressed the 
command of God, and fell from his original innocence; whereby his 
posterity inherit a nature and an environmental inclined toward sin, 



ASHE BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 89 



and as soon as they are capable of moral action become transgressors 
and are under condemnation. Only the grace of God can bring man 
into His holy fellowship and enable man to fulfill the creative pur- 
pose of God. The sacredness of human personality is evident in that 
God created man in His own image, and in that Christ died for man; 
therefore, every man possesses dignity and is worthy of respect and 
Christian love.

SALVATION 

Salvation involves the redemption of the whole man, and is of- 
fered freely to all who accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour, who 
by His own blood obtained eternal redemption for the believer. In 
its broadest sense salvation includes regeneration, sanctification, and 
glorficiation. 

A. Regeneration, or the new birth, is a work of God's grace whereby 
believers become new creatures in Christ Jesus. It is a change of heart 
wrought by the Holy Spirit through conviction of sin, to which the 
sinner responds in repentance toward God and faith in the Lord Jesus 
Christ. 

Repentance and faith are inseparable experiences of grace. Repen- 
tance is a genuine turning from sin toward God. Faith is the accep- 
tance of Jesus Christ and commitment of the entire personality to 
Him as Lord and Saviour. Justification is God's gracious and full ac- 
quittal upon principles of His righteousness of all sinners who repent 
and believe in Christ. Justification brings the believer into a relation- 
ship of peace and favor with God. 

B. Sanctification is the experience, beginning in regeneration, by 
which the believer is set apart to God's purposes, and is enabled to 
progress toward moral and spiritual perfection through the presence 
and power of the Holy Spirit dwelling in him. Growth in grace should 
continue throughout to regenerate a person's life.

GOD'S PURPOSE AND GRACE 

Election is the gracious purpose of God, according to which he 
regenerates, sanctifies, and glorifies sinners. It is consistent with the 
free agency of man, and comprehends all the means in connection 
with the end. It is a glorious display of God's sovereign goodness, 
and is infinitely wise, holy, and unchangeable. It excludes boasting 
and promotes humility. 

All true believers endure to the end. Those whom God has accepted 
in Christ, and sanctified by His Spirit, will never fall away from the 
state of grace, but shall persevere to the end. Believers may fall into 
sin through neglect and temptation, whereby they grieve the Spirit, 
impair their graces and comforts, bring reproach on the cause of 
Christ, and temporal judgements on themselves, yet they shall be 
kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation.

THE CHURCH 

A New Testament church of the Lord Jesus Christ is a local body 
of baptized believers who are associated by covenant in the faith and 
fellowship of the gospel, observing the two ordinances of Christ, com- 
mitted to His teachings, exercising the gifts, rights, and privileges 
invested in them by His Word, and seeking to extend the gospel to 
the ends of the earth. 

This church is an autonomous body, operating through democratic 
processes under the Lordship of Jesus Christ. In such a congrega- 
tion mmbers are equally responsible. Its Scriptural officers are pastors 
and deacons. 

The New Testament speaks also of the church as the body of Christ 
which includes all of the redeemed of all ages. 

Matt. 16:15-19; 18:15-20; Acts 2:41-42; 47; 5:11-14; 6:3-6; 13:1-3

BAPTISM AND THE LORD'S SUPPER 

Christian baptism in the immersion of a believer in water in the 
name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. It is an act of obe- 
dience symbolizing the believer's faith in a crucified, buried, and risen

Saviour, the believer's death to sin, the burial of the old life, and 
in the resurrection to walk in newness of life in Christ Jesus. It is 
a testimony to his faith in the final resurrection of the dead. Being 
a church ordinanace, it is prerequisite to the privileges of church 
membership and to the Lord's supper. 

The Lord's Supper is a symbolic act of obedience whereby members 
of the church, through partaking of the bread and the fruit of the 
vine, memorialize the death of the Redeemer and anticipate His se- 
cond coming.

THE LORD'S DAY 

The first day of the week is the Lord's Day. It is a Christian institu- 
tion for regular observance. It commemorates the resurrection of 
Christ from the dead and should be employed in exercises of wor- 
ship and spiritual devotion, both public and private, and by refrain- 
ing from worldy amusements, and resting from secular employments, 
work of necessity and mercy only being excepted.

Col. 2:16; 3:16; Rev. 1:10. 



THE KINGDOM 

The Kingdom of God includes both His general sovereignty over 
the universe and His particular kinship over men who willfully 
acknowledge Him as King. Particularly the Kingdom is the realm of 
salvation into which men enter by trustful, childlike, commitment 
to Jesus Christ. Christians ought to pray and to labor that the 
Kingdom may come and God's will be done on earth. The full con- 
summation of the Kingdom awaits the return of Jesus Christ and the 
end of this age.

LAST THINGS 

God, in His own time and in His own way, will bring the world 
to its appropriate end. According to His promise, Jesus Christ will 
return personally and visibly in glory to the earth; the dead will be 
raised; and Christ will judge all men in righteousness. The unrighteous 
will be consigned to Hell, the place of everlasting punishment. The 
righteous in their resurrected and glorified bodies will receive their 
reward and will dwell forever in Heaven with the Lord.

EVANGELISM AND MISSIONS 

It is the duty and privilege of every follower of Christ and of every 
church of the Lord Jesus Christ to endeavor to make disciples of all 
nations. The new birth of man's spirit by God's Holy Spirit means 
the birth of love for others. Missionary efforts on the part of all rests 
thus upon a spiritual necessity of the regenerate life, and is express- 
ly and repeatedly commanded in the teachings of Christ. It is the 
duty of every child of God to seek constantly to win the lost to Christ 
by personal effort and by all other methods in harmony with the 
gospel of Christ. 

Gen. 12:1-3; Ex. 19:5-6; Isa. 6:1-8; Matt. 9:37-38; 10:5-15 
13:18-30; 37-43; 16:19; 22:9-10; 24:14; 28:18-20; Luke 10:1-18

2 Tim. 4-5; Heb. 2:1-3; 11:39 to 12:2 1 Peter 2:4-10; Rev. 22:17. 



EDUCATION 

The cause of education in the Kingdom of Christ is co-ordinate 
with the causes of missions and general benevolence, and should 
receive along with these the liberal support of the churches. An ade- 
quate system of Christian schools is necessary to a complete spiritual 
program for Christ's people. 



ASHE BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 93 



In Christian education there should be a proper balance between 
academic freedom and academic responsibility. Freedom in any 
orderly relationship of human life is always limited and never ab- 
solute. The freedom of a teacher in a Christian school, college, or 
seminary is limited by the preeminence of Jesus Christ, by the 
authoritive nature of the Scriptures, and by the distinct purpose for 
which the school exists. 

Deut. 4:1; 5:9; 14; 6:1-10; 31:12-13; Neh. 8:1-8; Job 28:28; Psalm

to 6:3; James 1:5; 3:17. 



STEWARDSHIP 

God is the source of all blessings, temporal, and spiritual; all that 
we have and are we owe to Him. Christians have a spiritual debtor- 
ship to the whole world, a holy trusteeship in the gospel, and a bin- 
ding stewardship in their possessions. They are therefore under 
obligations to serve Him with their time, talents, and material posses- 
sions; and should recognize all these as entrusted to them to use for 
the glory of God and for helping others. According to the Scriptures, 
Christians should contribute of their means cheerfully, regularly, 
systemically, proportionately, and liberally for the advancement of 
the Redeemer's cause on earth. 

Gen. 14:20; Lev. 27:30-32; Deut. 8:18; Ma. 3:8-12; Matt. 6:1-4

16:1-4; 2 Cor. 8-9; 12:15; Phil. 4:10-19; 1 Peter 18:19. 



COOPERATION 

Christ's people should, as occasion requires, organize such 
associations and conventions as may best secure cooperation for the 
great objects of the Kingdom of God. Such organizations have no 
authority over one another or over the churches. They are volun- 
tary and advisory designated to elicit, combine, and direct the 
energies of our people in the most efficient manner. Members of New 
Testament churches should cooperate with one another in carrying 
forward the missionary, educational, and benevolent ministries for 
the extension of Christ's Kingdom. Christian unity in the New Testa- 
ment sense is spiritual harmony and voluntary cooperation for com- 
mon ends by various groups of Christ's people. Cooperation is 
desirable between the various Christian denominations, when the end 
to be attained is itself justified, and when such cooperation involves 
no violation of conscience or compromise of loyalty to Christ and 
His Word as revealed in the New Testament.

THE CHRISTIAN AND THE SOCIAL ORDER 

Every Christian is under obligation to seek to make the will of 
Christ supreme in his own life and in human society. Means and 
methods used for the improvement of society and the establishment 
of righteousness among men can be truly and permanently helpful 
only when they are rooted in the regeneration of the individual by 
the saving grace of God in Christ Jesus. The Christian should op- 
pose in the spirit of Christ every form of greed, selfishness, and vice. 
He should work to provide for the orphaned, the needy, the aged, 
the helpless and the sick. Every Christian should seek to bring in- 
dustry, government, and society as a whole under the sway of the 
principles of righteousness, truth and brotherly love. In order to pro- 
mote these ends Christians should be ready to work with all men 
of good will in any good cause always being careful to act in the spirit 
of love without compromising their loyalty to Christ and His truth.

1:27:2-8. 



PEACE AND WAR 

It is the duty of Christians to seek peace with all men or principles 
of righteousness. In accordance with the spirit and teachings of Christ 
they should do all in their power to put an end to war. 

The true remedy for the war spirit is the gospel of our Lord. The 
supreme need of the world is the acceptance of His teachings in all 
the affairs of men and nations, and the practical applications of His 
laws of love. 

Isa. 2:4; Matt. 5:9; 38-48; 6:33; 26-52; Luke 22:36; 38; Rom.

RELIGIOUS LIBERTY 

God alone is Lord of the conscience and He has left it free from 
the doctrines and commandments of men which are contrary to His 



ASHE BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 95 



Word or not contained in it. Church and state should be separate. 
The state owes to every church protection and full freedom in the 
pursuit of its spiritual ends. In providing for such freedom no ec- 
clesiastical group or denomination should be favored by the state 
more than others. Civil government being ordained of God, it is the 
duty of Christians to render loyal obedience thereto in all things not 
contrary to the revealed will of God. The church should not resort 
to the civil power to carry on its work. The gospel of Christ con- 
templates spiritual means alone for the pursuit of its ends. The state 
has no right to impose penalties for religious opinions of any kind. 
The state has no right to impose taxes for the support of any form 
of religion. A free church in a free state is the Christian ideal, and 
this implies the right of free and unhindered access to God on the 
part of all men, and the right to form and propagate opinions in the 
sphere of religion without interference by the civil power.

the rich man going to hell?" He continued, "God never intended man 
for hell. He never created hell for man but for the devil. Jesus came 
to keep man out of hell. So we can't blame Jesus. It wasn't the Holy 
Spirit. The Holy Spirit convicts us of sin that sends him to hell. 
We can't blame the Gospel because it is our road map to Heaven. 
So who is responsible? Why did he go to hell? It wasn't for what he 
did. He went to hell for what he did not do. He did not receive the 
Son of God as his Savior and that is why he went to hell-because 
he rejected Jesus Christ." 

Rev. Jones concluded by asking, "What does hell really mean 
to us? We have the key as Christians to lock the door to hell to keep 

people out Are we hearers only and not doers of the word? 

People are not going to be saved if someone don't tell them about 
Jesus". He then led in prayer.

greatest blessings come when God sends them... Abraham had to 
wait 16 years for the son of God promised him". He told those pre- 
sent, "We have to wait on the Lord". Rev. Presnell concluded by 
stating, "God has given us the answer (to all problems) if we would 
only turn back to him. If we kept the laws of God we would not need 
the laws of the land". 

Rev. Carroll Arant, Pastor of Fletcher Memorial, asked the bless-

AMERICAN BIBLE SOCIETY REPORT 



In 1991 the American Bible Society celebrated 175 years of 
outreach to people around the world, sharing the Word of God in 
the languages and formats they could most easily understand. And 
this anniversary year also turned out to be one of momentous op- 
portunity, challenge and achievement. The war in the Persian Gulf 
at the beginning of the year offered an unprecedented opportunity 
to reach men and women in the Armed Forces while they were serv- 
ing the cause of peace in the Middle East. More than 300,000 Bibles 
with special camouflage covers and over 100,000 New Testaments 
were shared with those involved in Desert Storm. In May, the ABS 
released an entirely new English translation of the New Testament, 
the Contemporary English Version, entitles Bible For Today's Family. 
This translation, originally designed to convey the message of the 
Scriptures in a language young people could easily read and unders- 
tand, proved to hold great appeal for a much wider audience and 
is rapidly becoming one of the most popular versions in the country. 
The ABS continued its progress toward achieving its vision for the 
future with the arrival in July of Dr. Eugene B. Habecker as its new 
President and CEO. 

The American Bible Society throughout 1991 was the largest 
non-profit publisher of Scriptures in the United States and pressed 
forward in its efforts to make God's Word easily available to everyone 
in the country. The ABS continued with its outreach to individual 
churches, correctional institutions, schools, hospitals and nursing 
homes, community organizations and other Christian ministry agen- 
cies. In addition, special Portion and Selection formats were created 
for those with special needs, such as troubled youth, alcoholics and 
drug abusers, the homeless and those suffering from AIDS, etc. The 
ABS also continued to increase its channels of distribution in 1991 
in order to reach people in every area of life. Direct marketing cam- 
paigns, radio and television announcements, media tours by its new 
president, and a corps of volunteers numbering over 7,000 all con- 
tributed toward promoting the work and mission of the American 
Bible Society and increasing the influence of the Scriptures in all 
segments of American society.

BAPTIST CHILDREN'S HOMES REPORT 

Like a marathon runner, Baptist Children's Homes of North 
Carolina (BCH) "hit the wall" in 1991-92, but persevered to finish 
standing up! 

In an exhausting year for staff and a myriad of volunteers, BCH 
successfully concluded its first statewide fund-raising campaign, 
received its first Thanksgiving Offering since 1979, dedicated expan- 
sion of Cameron Boys Camp, broke ground for the new Fleshmen- 
Pratt Education Center in Thomasviile, inaugurated an innovative 
Bible study progam at Mills Home, installed two new pastors at cam- 
pus churches and solidified programs that have placed it among child 
care leaders for decades. 

These efforts enabled BCH to serve more than 1,300 children 
and families at 13 facilities statewide, including Chris, named All- 
Conference nose guard for 2A state champion Thomasviile Bulldogs; 
Sandi, who has enrolled at Gardner-Webb College; Deborah, nam- 
ed outstanding Freshman at Thomasviile High after enduring a court 
battle that sent her father to prison for abuse; Jennifer, who married 
on the Broyhill campus where she'd lived for seven years; Kathy, 
who will continue to live at Broyhill while she attends college; and 
a host of others who are making life-changing commitments because 
they've received a second chance at Baptist Children's Homes. 

In April, BCH successfully concluded its "Give a child a chancer 
financial campaign by gaining three-year commitments for $11.2 
million, topping the $7.5 million goal, and the challenge goal of 



ASHE BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 115 



$11 million. Significant priorities accomplished in the campaign are: 
expansion and relocation of Cameron Boys Camp to a more seclud- 
ed site on its 903-acres of wilderness; ground-breaking for the 
Fleshman-Pratt Education Center, a model day care facility for in- 
fants, toddlers, and two-year olds; a unique Staff Training Institute 
for child care workers and social workers; and more than $2.7 million 
committed for permanent endowment. 

And, the first Thanksgiving Offering for BCH since 1979 raised 
$510,000, a sum more than $100,000 greater than realized through 
the combined offering with Baptist Hospital and Baptist Retirement 
Homes. BCH sent $1,000 from the Thanksgiving Offering to the Bap- 
tist Children's Homes of Sao Paulo, Brazil as fulfillment of a pro- 
mise to donate 10 percent of everything received over the goal to 
help out partners in the south. 

In addition, BCH maintained the partnership with our Brazilian 
counterparts by sending three training teams to Brazil, and hosting 
a group of Brazilian pastors in Thomasville. 

Most BCH residents come from dysfunctional families where a 
single parent, most often a mother, is unable to care for her children. 
Her frustration with life, often due to alcohol or drug abuse, or hav- 
ing been abused herself, leads to limitless freedom for the children, 
which leads to troubling behavior. Physical abuse, divorce, alcohol, 
drugs and truancy mark their young lives. Behavorial problems make 
it impossible for the child to continue to live at home. 

Baptist Children's Homes provide a safe environment where 
children learn to name their problems and set goals to overcome 
them, which leads to behavior change and often, at the same time, 
willing family members are also addressing their problems with the 
help of BCH social workers. In many cases, children and families 
are restored. 

BCH enjoyed a year of tremendous successes, in human terms 
and in institutional terms, which will allow it to continue to affect 
change in lives. Success in the "Give a child a chance!" Campaign 
will help provide a margin of excellence in the future when the pledges 
are paid. Already, the enthusiasm engendered by the effort have lifted 
the spirits of staff across the state. 

Still, the Cooperative Program continues to anchor our budget 
planning. We urge renewed commitment to cooperative giving among 
our churches. It is essential, not only for us, but for the entire mis- 
sions enterprise built painstakingly for a century and a half. Baptist 
Children's Homes receives $1.5 million from Cooperative Program 
receipts each year. This is the stackpole around which we build our 
other income planning. A decrease in Cooperative Program dollars 
to Baptist Children's Homes would seriously jeopardize our ability 
to care for children. 

An increasingly important aspect of our support comes from 
estate gifts and bequests. More and more people who want their 
resources to provide new life for chidlren include BCH in their wills.

ANNUAL REPORT OF 
JVC BAPTIST FOUNDATION, INC. 

The North Carolina Baptist Foundation, as an agency of the 
Baptist State Convention of North Carolina, is committed under the 
guidance of the Holy Spirit in serving North Carolina Baptists and 
others in generating an increased awareness of Christian estate 
stewardship principals as a means of financially undergirding chur- 
ches, institutions and mission endeavors on a permanent basis. 

Assets are managed under the direction of the Foundation Board 
of Directors with interest income being paid either in perpetuity to 
Baptist causes named by the donor or to the donor (or heirs) for their 
lifetime (or specific period of time) before the income is then paid 
in perpetuity to the named Baptist causes. 

Earned income distributed and paid 

Baptist churches, institutions & 

mission causes during fiscal year 1991: $1,100,606 

Earned income distributed and paid 

to individuals (with Baptist causes 

named as future beneficiaries) during 

the fiscal year 1991: $1,062,643 

Total market value of Foundation assets, 

December 31, 1991: $36,283,384 

During 1991, the Board of Directors, with the assistance of a 
nationally recognized investment consulting firm, adopted a detail- 
ed Investment Policy to govern the types of investments that its fiscal 
agents may make in keeping with the Christian commitment of the 
Foundation, as well as attempt to insure that the future spending 
value of the invested trust fund dollar will keep up with inflation. A 
study reveal that during the past five years the fiscal agents manag- 
ing the Foundation assets ranked near the top nationally with other 
investment managers who operate under investment guidelines 
similar to the ones provided by the Foundation Board. 

The Foundation staff and operations are housed in a building 
adjacent to the Baptist State Convention Building in Cary. Individuals 
and church groups are invited to call and arrange a visit of their Trust 
Agency's office building. 

The significance of the Foundation services was illustrated in a 
recent experience that staff members had while eating in a fast food 
restaurant in Durham. In taking a seat adjacent to a table occupied 
by a young black police officer, we observed the enthusiasm of a white 
lad of about 4 years of age as he stood talking to the officer. As the 
mother and a younger child, coming from another area of the 



I 1 8 ASHE BAPTIST 



restaurant, called for the lad to join them, he walked away from the 
table 6 to 8 feet, turned around and said to the officer, who was now 
standing and preparing to leave, "Can I give you a hug?" After an 
affirmative answer from the officer, the child walked over to the of- 
ficer, reached around his legs and gave him a hug. The officer con- 
firmed to us that he wished the world was filled with people like this 
child. The example corresponds to what so many already have done 
through the Foundation. As they approach the time of leaving this 
earthly life, they look back affectionately on what the Lord has done 
for them during their life and decide that they want to leave an ex- 
pression of their love through an enduring and lasting gift (a "hug", 
if you please) that will serve the Lord until His return.

NORTH CAROLINA BAPTIST HOSPITAL 
REPORT - 1992 

Baptist Hospital utilizes the skills and training of more than 
5,700 employees to provide outstanding health care in settings as 
varied as the Brenner Children's Hospital, the Trauma Center, and 
the J. Paul Sticht Center on Aging and Rehabilitation. Last year, 
the Joint Committee on the Accredition of Health Care Organiza- 
tions said that Baptist Hospital ranks in the top 10 percent of all 
hospitals in the nation. 

During the past year, the hospital admitted 24,000 patients. It 
performed 6,662 surgical procedures, including 1,020 open heart 
operations, 29 kidney transplants and 80 bone marrow transplants. 
The AirCare helicopter flew 742 missions. 

Total revenue of the hospital during the year was $407,280,000. 
Cooperative Program gifts from the churches were $656,180, which 
was applied to the budget of the Department of Pastoral Care. The 
Mother's Day Offering and other special gifts from the churches total- 
ed $424,406 and was used for benevolent care for patients who had 
no other means of paying their hospital bills. 

The Pastoral Care Department, which is funded in part through 
the Cooperative Program, provided clinical pastoral education to 55 
students during the past year. The Pastoral Care staff provided more 
than 53,000 specific ministries to hospital patients, family members, 
and staff. And, the counseling division provided over 24,000 counsel- 
ing sessions. The professional staff of the Pastoral Care Department 
continues to respond to requests for help from churches in conflict, 
from pastors and their families across the state. 



ASHE BAPTIST ASSOCIATiON 119 



The various services of the hospital are readily accessible to all 
North Carolina Baptists and others. A telephone call to the Health - 
On-Call Office (919-716-2255) can secure an outpatient appointment 
with any one of the various specialists on the staff or can begin the 
process of gaining admission to the hospital if that need is indicated. 

Charges for the hospital services compare very favorably with 
those in other hospitals of the state. Reports from the North Carolina 
Medical Database Commission indicate that Baptist Hospital's 
charges are lower than the average in other hospitals which pro- 
vide similar services and are considerably lower than in the other 
teaching hospitals. Our hospital did not have an increase in it's rates 
for the current fiscal year of July 1, 1992 - June 30, 1993. 

The hospital's physical plant continues to expand. A new 
840-space parking deck was opened in January. A new Emergency 
Department/ Dietary building which will also make possible more 
private patient rooms is under construction now. Construction will 
begin soon on the 170-bed skilled and intermediate care nursing facili- 
ty and on the J. Paul Stitch Center on Aging and Rehabilitation. This 
expansion will make it possible not only to serve more people, but 
to serve them better. 

The staff and the patients of Baptist Hospital are grateful to 
North Carolina Baptists for the heritage they have given the institu- 
tion and for the moral and financial support they continue to give 
to its ministry.

BAPTIST RETIREMENT HOMES REPORT 

1992 - MAKING LIFE FOR OLDER ADULTS THE BEST OF TIMES 

One of the greatest needs facing North Carolina Baptists as they 
move into 1993 is the ability to provide affordable quality long-term 
care services to the "Aged Saints" of our Convention. 

The fastest growing segment of North Carolina Baptist life are 
those individuals in the age category of 85 and older. That age group 
is growing at five times the rate of any other population segment 
in Baptist life. The 85 and older age group is also that age group 
most likely to need the services provided by a long-term care institu- 
tion like Baptist Retirement Homes. Unfortunately in 1992 in our 
State, there were not enough nursing care beds to meet the needs 
of the growing number of Older Adults who were functionally im- 
paired and needed the services of a long-term care provider. Com- 
plicating the shortage problem was the fact that the cost of those 
beds was high (more than the average North Carolina Baptist Older 
Adult could pay). And to make matters even worse, in spite of the 
high cost of those beds, often the quality of care provided through 
those beds was fair at best. In other words, the greatest problem fac- 
ing North Carolina Baptist Older Adults in 1992 was the fact that 
there were simply not enough affordable quality nursing care beds 
available for use by people like you and me and our Older Adult family 
members. 

Having become aware some years ago of the above mentioned 
problem, Baptist Retirement Homes (for the last five year period) 
has been working to develop a system of affordable quality nursing 
care beds throughout the State for use by North Carolina Baptist 
Older Adults. New nursing care beds became available in the Pied- 
mont area of our State in 1989 (through the opening of the 
Brookridge Retirement Community). In 1992, affordable quality nur- 
sing care will become available to Western North Carolina Baptist 
Older Adults through the new Rickman Nursing Care Center being 
built on Richmond Hill in Northwest Asheville. It is our institution's 
hope that by 1994 afforable quality nursing care will also be available 
to Eastern North Carolina Baptist Older Adults as well. Your sup- 
port has made the above possible. 

In 1992, North Carolina Baptists through their gifts to the 
Cooperative Program and North Carolina Offering for Older Adults 
made it possible for Baptist Retirement Homes to provide financial 
assistance to more than $2.5 million toward the construction of the 
new Rickman Nursing Care Center in Asheville... a new facility that 
will enable Baptist Retirement Homes to make life for many Western 
North Carolina Baptists truly... the Best of Times.

Thank you North Carolina Baptists for your support. Please con- 
tinue to pray for our ministry and its ability to meet the ever growing

THE BIBLICAL RECORDER REPORT 

Last year we reported to you: "The Baptist world is changing 
rapidly; some would contend it is for good while others think it is 
nothing short of a tragedy." In these past 12 months, the changes 
are beyond description -- on the world scene and in Baptist life. 

Whatever one's view may be, there is an indispensable need for 
correct and reliable information. The Biblical Recorder was born and 
continues to serve for that purpose. Never was the Recorder more 
needed than now. 

People are reading less than any time in recent history. It is true 
of secular publications, it is true of wholesome books from respected 
libraries, it is true of religious publications. We live in an electronic 
age where we often think we know the answers to the issues only 
to discover we do not. 

An informed Baptist is a better Baptist; an uninformed Baptist 
may be an uninvolved or disruptive Baptist. No democracy, including 
our local churches, can survive long without an informed, involved 
constituency which makes decisions based upon accurate informa- 
tion from reliable sources. 

The most important thing facing us at this point is to get the 
Recorder into more Baptist homes than ever before. Your support 
as a subscriber and reader and your encouragement to others will 
enable the paper to better serve the constituency with accurate and 
helpful information delivered to Baptist homes and churches. We 
need your help! 

In order to save churches, large amounts of money and to in- 
crease the readership of the Recorder, Church News Service (CNS) 
was launched in 1990. This system lets any congregation have their 
church newsletter incorporated into the Biblical Recorder which 
saves staff time, postage and printing costs. Usually, for less than 
what it costs to produce the church newsletter, CNS gives the entire 
Baptist communication package to each family in the congregation. 

The paper focuses more and more attention on North Carolina 
Baptists with news, features and inspirational articles which will en- 
courage individuals and churches in their witness and ministry. One 
sure way to conquer problems and overcome the barriers to effec- 
tive witness and ministry is to have the facts, know the issues and 



122 ASHE BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 



be adequately informed. 

That is why the Recorder was born; that is why it serves today.

BROTHERHOOD REPORT 



THEME: "Mission Involvement Through Equipping Disciples" 

Mission involvement didn't just happen for the 1990's. It began 
in God's Scripture. The need for men and boys of all ages to be in- 
volved in missions for Christ is as critical today as it was for His ear- 
ly followers: 

As the need for personal involvement on behalf of Christians 
grows, the need to equip today's and tomorrow's disciples for per- 
sonal missions involvement is also of utmost importance. 

The Brotherhood organization offers something for all age 
groups. These include Lads, Crusaders, Pioneers, Royal Am- 
bassadors, Baptist Young Men and Baptist Men. 

If you would like more information on one or all leadership pro- 
gram involving the Brotherhood Organization, please call me at

CHRISTIAN ACTION LEAGUE 



The Christian Action League is a voluntary organization com- 
posed of concerned citizens brought together to oppose those destruc- 
tive influences in society which contribute to the low level of public 
morality existing today. The League is dedicated to strengthening 
laws against gambling, alcohol, and commercialized vice in its many 
forms while emphasizing the basic importance of spiritual and moral 
values to the development and growth of the individual, the local 
community and the nation as a whole. 

The Christian Action League of Ashe County is concerned with 
the growing influence of the media on public morality and the grow- 
ing support for government sponsored gambling in our state. As 
Christians, we must stand together in opposing a state lottery and 
para-mutual gambling in North Carolina, because it is destructive 
of families and opens the door for organized crime to enter our 
community. 

The Christian Action League of Ashe County in association with 
the North Carolina League urges individuals and churches in our 
county to inform public officials of our opposition to the sale of 
beverage alcohol and liquors in North Carolina and to voice our con- 
cern with efforts to legalize para-mutual betting in our state. Addi- 
tional goals for 1992-1993 include the following: 

A. To promote Christian values in our community 

B. To eliminate alcoholic advertisements from the media 

C. To educate the community about the destructive influences 
of alcohol on our lives 

To attain these goals, we need the active support of all Chris- 
tians in the Ashe Baptist Association. We invite all like-minded 
citizens to join with us in promoting the highest standards of Chris- 
tian morality in the lives of our people.

The industry made its biggest push ever during the 1991-1992 
legislative session. They secured 14 of the most effective and best 
known lobbyists that money can buy to push for their cause, but to 
no avail. When the legislature adjourned on July 24th, the gambl- 
ing industry threw in the towel realizing that they did not have the 
votes in the N.C. House to pass their state-sponsored gambling bill, 
the lottery. 

What made the difference? People like you did. You secured the 
commitments from your legislators that the role of government is 
not to exploit their weakest citizens, but to appeal to their strengths. 
Gambling violates that age-old principle. 

There is one thing for sure. The pro-gambling forces will be back. 
However, the issue will be decided on November 3rd at the General 
Election. If you elect legislators who are opposed to state-sponsored 
gambling, it will not make any difference how many lobbyists the 
gambling industry employs. The decision is in your hands. How do 
the candidates from your area stand on this issue? 

There are other very important moral issues that you need to 
discuss with your legislative candidates. Some of them are: 

1. SEX EDUCATION... Are our young people being deceived into 
believing that "safe sex" outside of marriage is possible and okay? 
The current rise in veneral disease and teenage pregnancies, and the 
related emotional problems tells us we must focus attention on this 
issue. 

2. Abortion... The Supreme Court ruling regarding the abortion law 
of the state of Pennsylvania opens the door for further restrictions 
and conditions under which abortions can be performed — leaving 
this up to the states. This year we have worked on trying to get legisla- 
tion passed requiring parental consent for abortion on minors, and 
reducing abortion funding. Both of these measures passed in the 
House but died in the Senate. 

3. Alcohol/Drug Issues. . .It is so important that we continue to ad- 
dress problems related to alcohol use and abuse. Reducing the blood 
alcohol standard for DWI from .10 to .08 was one of our targets this 
year, but it also failed to pass in the Senate after passing in the House. 



ASHE BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 125 



We cannot overemphasize the importance of getting to know 
who your candidates are and how they stand on these key issues. 
Plato put it so well: "The price that good people pay for not being 
involved in politics is to be governed by people worse than 
themselves." 

Thank you for standing with us in the cause of applied 
Christianity.

CHRISTIAN LIFE COMMISSION ASSOC. REPORT 

The Commission seeks to develop Christian morality among 
Southern Baptists by emphasizing the application of the principles 
of the Christian faith both in personal and public life. An ongoing 
effort is made to provide Christian ethics services to other Southern 
Baptist agencies, state Baptist conventions, associations, churches, 
individuals to enable Southern Baptists to deal more effectively with 
the serious moral challenges of our time. The Commission en- 
courages the formation and activiation of Christian Life Committees 
at all levels of Southern Baptist life beginning with the local church. 
By coordinating and correlating Southern Baptist social concerns, 
the Commission helps to make the greatest possible impact for Christ 
in support of the Convention's total objectives. 

The presence of full-time Washington-based staff has enhances 
greatly the Commission's ability to fulfill the portion of its program 
statement which calls on it to "bring to bear Baptist statements, con- 
victions, and insights in the field of Christian ethics and religious 
liberty upon important policy making groups" and to "present 
Southern Baptist insight for consideration in the planning of federal 
government programs on children and youth, aging, housing, 
employment, public health, and other matters pertaining to social 
welfare." 

During the past year, the Washington and Nashville staffs have 
worked diligently to share both with Congress and the White House 
numerous convictions and concerns of Southern Baptists. Commis- 
sion staff members have been active in corresponding and meeting 
with members of both the legislative and executive branches of the 
federal government concerning areas of Southern Baptists concern. 
Also, with the approval of the Convention's Executive Committee, 
the Commission launced a new publication, Salt, in a newsletter for- 
mat (six issues a year), which seeks to keep Southern Baptists in- 
formed on public policy and issues active in the administrative, 
judicial, and legislative branches of the federal government. The goal 



126 ASHE BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 



of Salt is to inform and motivate Southern Baptists to influence their 
president, senators, and representatives in a responsible, scriptural 
manner. 

The Commission has also been particularly active during the 
past year in leading a stong coalition of numerous groups suppor- 
ting legislation restricting alcohol advertising and requiring man- 
datory health warnings on alcohol advertisements. Abortion, drug 
abuse and pornography are among the other issues on which the 
Commission staff has been involved through the Washington office 
in the past year. The Commission remains particularly concerned 
about the serious threats to religious liberty posed by recent Supreme 
Court decisions and works closely with a coalition of groups trying 
to remedy these threats both through legislation and judicial action. 
The Commission also continued to pursue the fulfillment of its pro- 
gram statement this past year through the filing of amicus curiae, 
"friend of the court," briefs in cases involving abortion, pornography, 
and religious liberty. 

In the religious liberty arena, the Commission also filed its first 
independent amicus curia (friend of the court) brief in the U.S. 
Supreme Court in the Lee v. Weisman school graduation prayer case. 
In this brief, the Commission asked the Court to overturn a lower 
court order prohibiting invocations and benedictions containing the 
word "God" at public school commencement exercises. The Com- 
mission has also asked the Court to revise the "Lemon" test and sug- 
gested a new test to replace Lemon, a test which is premised on the 
principles of government accommodation of religious practices which 
exist independently of government action and are not induced or 
coerced by government. The Commission believes students must 
have the right to free exercise of their religious liberty while in school, 
to associate voluntarily with one another during lunch, recess and 
free periods to pray, study the Bible and to discuss religious issues 
with each other without government control or censorship. 

The Commission's 1992 annual national seminar in Washington, 
D.C. was entitled "Citizen Christians: Their Rights and Respon- 
sibilities." The program combined interpretive biblical themes with 
addresses on subjects such as "How Christians Can Make a Dif- 
ference Inside Government" and "What You as a Christian Can and 
Cannot Do." The seminar also included a White House briefing and 
a congressional breakfast where seminar participants had an oppor- 
tunity to interact with various senators and congressmen about issues 
of concern to them. 

The Commission continued its long-standing leadership in the 
field of race relations by sponsoring a consultation which brought 
Southern Baptists of many racial and ethnic backgrounds together. 
The consultation was very helpful in addressing the goals the Com- 
mission seeks and the obstacles the Commission faces in encourag- 
ing our denomination and our society to be more Christ-like on this 
issue in the years ahead. The Commission also provided leadership 
in the National Coalition Against Pornography and during Bible 



ASHE BAPTIST ASSOCIA TION 127 



Preaching-Church Administration Weeks and National Student 
Weeks at Ridgecrest and Glorieta. Commission staff also served as 
resource persons in events held in numerous state conventions as 
well as for other Southern Baptist agencies and entities. 

The Commission continued its responsibility assigned by the 
Southern Baptist Convention for education and action related to the 
issue of hunger. Commission staff produced the 1991-1992 World 
Hunger Awareness /Action Guide entitled Hunger. This guide was 
mailed to every church in the Convention to encourage and to sup- 
port the observance of World Hunger Day. The Commission- 
produced film, What Shall We Do in a Hungry World?, which had 
previously been mailed in videotape form to Southern Baptist associa- 
tions, continued to be used significantly in heightening Southern Bap- 
tists' awareness on this vital issue. 

CHURCH MUSIC REPORT 

Why have music in our churches? What do we hope to gain or 
accomplish by providing space, personnel, materials and effort to 
have music as part of our worship services? Is it to fill in time? To 
demonstrate our abilities? Because it is customary? Definitely not! 
Rather, music is a part of the over all worship of our Lord Jesus Christ 
and should be considered such. We can present the word of God in 
music the same as in preaching and teaching. 

The apostle John introduced us to the word in his gospel where 
he said, "In the beginning was the 'Word', and the Word was with 
God, and the Word was God." (John 1:1) 

The above scripture leaves no doubt in our mind as to who is 
referred to as the "Word." 

Jesus Christ, eternal "In the beginning " 

Jesus Christ, constantly existent "with God " 

Jesus Christ, positively identified "was God " 

The preaching of Christ is referred to as "the preached word" 
and is considered central in Baptist worship. For this area of wor- 
ship to be the most effective it, like most efforts, needs a proper 
setting. 

Part of God's reason for giving the world music must have been 
for the purpose of preparing our hearts to receive His message from 
His called and inspired messengers. 

If this is true, then our responsibility as "music people" in our 
churches is to use music and songs that will indeed lead our people 
to worship and to accept Jesus as Savior and Lord. 

Someone has said that music that reaches the feet before it 
reaches the heart is not worship music. Surely there must be some 
truth in the statement. 

May we approach our music responsibility with much prayer and 
humility. 

Respectfully Submitted, 
Dewey B. Campbell, Associational Music Director

DIRECTOR OF MISSIONS REPORT 

We come again to praise the Lord for granting us yet another 
year to serve Him and reach out for the salvation of the lost. We 
do not know that we have another year. This could be our last op- 
portunity to give our all to praise the One Who gave His all to save 
all that call upon Him. The time is short and the cost is great, but 
the results are forever. 

The Great truths remain: "Hell is hot; Heaven is sweet; Death 
is sure; Eternity is long; Salvation is free." When these truths con- 
sume us, revival will break out among us. 

My purpose in being is not necessarily expressed in the follow- 
ing list of activities. These simply account for the "stuff that make 
up a Director of Missions' life. What really matters is that "Mission 
Living" that makes up the life of our churches. I find more joy and 
pleasure in the baptisms and growth in our churches and because 
of our churches in such places as Brazil and West Virginia than in 
all the "busy work" that I list here. Read this entire publication for 
the "Real Stuff."

DISCIPLESHIP TRAINING REPORT 

I have been associated with Church Training for many years. 
New ministries have been started and there have been several name 
changes. Through it all our task has remained the same: "to equip 
Christians for the work of ministry in building up the body of Christ 
(Eph. 4:12)." 

Our new name, "Discipleship Training," is the lifelong process 
of becoming all that God would have us to be. 

The purpose of Discipleship Training is to train Christians in 
discipleship, ministry, and leadership. Areas of training include new 
church member orientation, discovering and expressing spiritual gifts 
and leadership skills training. Discipleship Training enables the 
church to teach Christian doctrine, Christian ethics, Christian 
history, Baptist distinctives, and how Southern Baptists do their 
work. 

Every Christian has a limitless capacity for spiritual growth. The 
church needs to provide discipleship training for every member from 
the youngest to the oldest. Discipleship Training challenges us to 
focus on that which most basic and fundamental to life: living our 
confession, "Jesus is Lord."

EVANGELISM COMMITTEE REPORT 



The Evangelism Committee does not take lightly its assignment: 
to "promote the work of evangelism in the churches and the associa- 
tion in cooperation with the State Department of Evangelism." 

This year this committee worked with WML) and others to plan 
and conduct a prayer retreat at Beaver Creek High School. It has 
planned an associational revival to be conducted at Fletcher 
Memorial Baptist Church September 25-27 with Rev. Jimmy Warden 
bringing the messages and Fletcher Memorial Church providing the 
music, and with the option of continuing on into the week, should 
the need be apparent. 

The committee has sorted through various opinions concern- 
ing another Rick Gage Crusade, and has determined to go in a dif- 
ferent direction in 1993. It has questioned the pastors concerning 
their preference of a speaker for a 1993 crusade, and is ready to "get 
on" with this as soon as it has a chairman. 

Welcome aboard as chairman, Rev. Lloyd Day, and as new 
members, Rev. Joe Riley Blevins and Dale Walton. 

Thank you to all the members of the Evangelism Committee who 
served faithfully this year. 

Respectfully Submitted, 
Rev. Jack Pugh, D.O.M.

EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE REPORT 

This has been one of the better years for the Executive Commit- 
tee in its meetings and functions. The spirit was always refreshing 
and the attendance was very good. We had an average of (20) twen- 
ty churches represented at each meeting. Our meeting places were: 
October 3, 1991 at Welcome Home Baptist; January 2, 1992 at Pilot 
Mountain Baptist, and enjoyed their beautiful new facilities; April 2, 
1992 at Pleasant Home Baptist; July 2, 1992 at Tuckerdale Baptist. 

One of the highlights of the meetings was the agreement with 
the Upper Ohio Valley Baptist Association in West Virginia to help 
in Back Yard Bible Clubs and Vacation Bible Schools. These were 
done by four churches in the association during the month of July. 
At this writing here was no report. 

The Executive Committee agreed to purchase Rev. Joel 
Gregory's videos on The Subject of Preaching to be used by anyone 
in the association. 

A Task Force was implemented to study and put together an 
area of ministering to the Hispanics in the county. The Evangelism 
Committee and Director of Missions are responsible for this project. 
Authority was given to the Moderator and Director of Missions to 
invite Key people to the Executive Committee meetings. 

Leaders who qualify for The Key Leadership Conference were 
elected in April according to the action of last years Annual Meeting. 

I would like to express my personal thanks to the Executive Com- 
mittee for their cooperation and willingness to promote the work of 
the Association and the Kingdom of God. I also express my thanks 
to you as an Association for the support you gave me during my two 
years as your Moderator and to Jack Pugh our DOM for his help 
and advice. 

Pray for our Association and its leaders, that in all things Jesus 
will be lifted up and God will be glorified. 

May God Bless you and each Church in Ashe Baptist 
Association.

Ervel Jones, Moderator 



FOREIGN MISSION REPORT 



During the past year, many changes have taken place all over 
the world. It was and still is a time of tension and new direction for 
many countries and their people. Some changes have opened doors 
that were once closed to our Southern Baptist work. Others have 
blocked work that had been successful. On the surface, most of the 
changes are viewed as political or economical; we must remember 



that each change touches the lives of humans who are experiencing 
emotional, physical and spiritual changes in their individual lives as 
well as the change brought on by new governments. The Lord man- 
dates that we be a mission-minded people and bring His plan of salva- 
tion to all people. Let's take a look at how we did in 1991. 

A new record was recorded with 233,334 baptisms in the foreign 
mission field. There were 1576 new churches started while the total 
membership grew by about 400,000 people. Our 3,906 missionaries 
served in 122 different countries. A record 12,108 volunteers went 
into all parts of the world to spread the gospel. 

Our foreign mission program was financed mainly by the Lottie 
Moon Christmas Offering ($79.78 million) and the Cooperative Pro- 
gram ($68.96 million). There was also a special hunger-relief offer- 
ing of $7.24 million. 

Large sections of Asia, Africa, Europe, Latin America, and 
Australia were covered by Southern Baptist Missionaries and lay peo- 
ple who helped with hunger relief, church construction, revivals, 
medical relief, Bible schools, and Bible distribution. God has cer- 
tainly blessed, as many people seem hungry to hear the gospel and 
have responded in record numbers. When we continue to pray and 
give so our foreign missionaries can do the work that God called them 
to do. May we work together in all our churches to support foreign 
missions with one objective: to reach a lost world for Christ.

PASTOR'S SALARY AND RETIREMENT 



In the 10th Chapter of Luke, Verse 7, the Bible tells us that 
"...the laborer is worthy of his hire..." Therefore, it is the Christian 
duty of the Church, the Body of Christ, to faithfully and adequately 
supply for the financial needs of the pastor who stands and through 
the preaching and teaching of God's Word feeds the flock with 
spiritual food. A pastor is one who is always there when you need 
him. He is on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and 52 weeks a 
year to minister to you, both in good times and in difficult times. 

Has your church adequately provided for the retirement of your 
pastor? The Church Annuity Plan is more than a retirement plan. 
It is a means to provide family protection today for the pastor and 
his family by covering disability and death, and a means to provide 
financial security in the future by covering investment opportunities 
for retirement. Also, new medical plans will be offered on January 
1, 1993, through the Annuity Plan. If your church has not enrolled 
its pastor in this plan, you may want to consider doing this through 
the Southern Baptist Annuity Plan. Your Director of Missions can 
tell you more about how to apply for these benefits. The ministry of 
the Annuity Board continues to be "Serving Those Who Serve the 
Lord." 

Paul, in his letter to the Philippian church in the latter part of 
Chapter 4, wrote that the Philippians had sent once and again unto 
his necessity, not because Paul desired a gift, but because Paul 
desired that the fruits of their labor would abound to their account 
in the nature of spiritual and material blessings from God who would 
supply all their need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus. 
Yes, it is a promise from God, you and your church can be richly 
blessed for providing for the necessities of your pastor.

PREACHERS' CONFERENCE REPORT 



The Preacher's Conference of the Ashe Baptist Association 
meets on the second Saturday on each month. The conference is 
a blessing to those who attend. This year, we have heard messages 
from God's word and fellowshipped with one another -- sharing our 
needs, prayer requests and victories. This year, we also had the op- 
portunity to benefit from the Joel Gregory Preaching series purchased 
by the Association. 

To the pastors of the Association, I highly recommend the Joel 
Gregory series as an aid in sermon preparation and delivery. 

I encourage the pastors of the Ashe Baptist Association to 
become more actively involved in the Preacher's Conference. God

will bless you through the preaching of His Word and as you

RESOLUTIONS COMMITTEE REPORT 

During the last year at the direction of the Association Executive 
Committee, the Resolution's Committee of the Ashe Baptist Associa- 
tion presented a Resolution to the General Board, which was printed 
in the Biblical Recorder. This Resolution stated our convention con- 
cerning the action of Purren Memorial Baptist Church of Raleigh 
and Binkley Memorial Baptist Church of Chapel Hill regarding 
homosexuality. We feel that our actions along with the actions of 
other churches in our State Convention influenced the decision of 
the General Board. 

In light of this, be it resolved that we the messengers of the "One 
Hundred and Sixth Annual Meeting" encourage all churches to send 
the Pastors and all other eligible messengers to the meeting of the 
State Baptist Convention in Winston Salem Coliseum November Nine 
through Eleven. 

Be it further resolved, that the "One Hundred and Sixth Annual 
Meeting" of the Ashe Baptist Association express our appreciation 
to the Buffalo and Pleasant Home Churches for providing our meeting 
places; also to the ministers, lay persons, and to these congrega- 
tions for preparing and serving such delicious meals. 

Be it further resolved that each church will continue to pray for 
our director of missions, and back and support him as he serves as 
our director of missions. 

In conclusion let us resolve that we will at all times be in prayer 
for the Ashe Baptist Association and our Baptist State Convention 
that we will work together to spread the gospel to the end of the earth.

SEMINARY EXTENSION REPORT 

(Ashe Baptist Christian Studies) 



Lessons from the "school of experience" are very valuable, but 
sometimes we need more than what the "lessons of life" have to of- 
fer. In 1951 the Southern Baptist Seminaries responded to this need 
by establishing Seminary Extension. Seminary Extension serves as 
a vehicle for delivering off-campus theological opportunities for clergy 
and lay people. 

Through the Ashe Baptist Christian Studies Center, we hope 
to be able to provide training for ministers and other church workers 
through an organized plan of study. Plans have been made to offer 
some courses of study in the fall of 1992. I hope those who feel the 
need to learn more about the Scriptures will take advantage of this 
opportunity for study.

SOUTHERN BAPTIST ANNUITY REPORT 



A growing number of churches and ministers are catching a vi- 
sion for insurance protection and preparation for retirement. Unfor- 
tunately, far too many pastors, other ministers and church and 
associational personnel do not have adequate financial protection. 
The Annuity Board's primary focus for 1992 and 1993 is on enroll- 
ing as many people and churches as possible in the Church Life and 
Health Program and the Church Annuity Plan. 

New medical plans will be offered on January 1, 1993, as op- 
tions to help address the affordability issue. 

The Church Annuity Plan is far more than a retirement plan. 
It is a means to provide family protection today as well as financial 
security tomorrow. 

As of May 1992, 34,571 persons were participating in the Church 
Annuity Plan. This is the highest number of members in the history 
of the Plan. The number of churches involved was 19,930. 

Eligible participants in the Church Annuity Plan benefit in five 
significant ways. 

1 . The Plan includes a Protection Section that covers disabili- 
ty and death. In 1991, 252 families received disability checks from 
the Plan, and 60 families received well over $1,000,000 in survivor 
benefits. Additionally, they received the full value of the deceased's 
retirement accounts. All of those protection benefits are free to 
members. They are funded by state convention Cooperative Program 
dollars. 



138 ASHE BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 



2. The Plan includes a choice of plan funds offering valuable, 
advantageous investment opportunities for retirement. In 1991, the 
Variable Fund credited 28.3% earnings and the Balanced Fund 
credited 22.4%. 

3. The Plan offers significant opportunities for avoiding un- 
necessary income tax. Ordained ministers do not pay self- 
employment tax for Social Security on contributions to the Church 
Annuity Plan. These advantages exceed those offered by IRAs. 

4. The Plan includes matching state convention Cooperative 
Program dollars for eligible members' retirement income accounts. 
This can amount to $210 per year resulting in higher benefits at 
retirement. 

5. A fifth value is the Annuity Board's strength and stability. 
On July 1, 1992, a five percent increase was applied to Plan A and 
defined contribution funded annuities. This brings Plan A increases 
to 222% of what was called for by the original plan formula benefit. 

Based on the needs of our people and in light of these special 
advantages, your association is encouraged to lead every church to 
participate in the Church Annuity Plan. 

The Annuity Board is celebrating 75 years of keeping the con- 
fidence of the people we serve. Our ministry continues to be "Serv- 
ing Those Who Serve the Lord."

STEWARDSHIP REPORT 

(Cooperative Program) 

When Jesus was on earth, He gave the Great Commission to 
His disciples and to us also. 

That Commission was to go to the ends of the earth preaching, 
teaching, and making disciples of all nations. 

I believe that same Commission is for us today. Christ did not 
mean for all of us to rush off to some far corner of the earth. He did 
give us a good program, in which each of us can have a part in the 
Great Commission. 

We have the Cooperative Program. There is no better way to 
support the Lord's work than through the Cooperative Program. 
When we, that make up the Southern Baptist Churches, support the 
Cooperative Program, we have a part in the Greatest world-wide mis- 
sion program in the world.

Our Fantastic Journey this year in Bible School is showing 
wonderful results. I appreciate each church and their leaders efforts 
to have a Bible School in their church. A special thanks to our 
Association VBS Team for their hard work this year. 

A big thanks goes out to those who taught, provided transpor- 
tation, funds and time to make our Associational Mission work in 
West Virginia possible. We had a great experience and it shows our 
Associations interest in mission work. If you conducted a Backyard 
or Mission VBS in your own church area this year we would like to 
thank you for your concern and work here at home. 

We look forward to an exciting summer in VBS, 1993. 

Respectfully Submitted, 
Mrs. Diane Dixon, Associational VBS Director 



IV M U REPORT 

God's desire today is for His people to participate with Him in 
the highest of all callings, bringing the world to salvation. He seeks 
people who confidently follow Christ's example of loving service and 
sacrificial obedience. Our assurance of victory is born of His pro- 
mise that we can "do all things through Christ who strengthens us." 

During 1992-93, the emphasis, Lead On! will engage the 
Woman's Missionary Union members in some healthy self- 
examination. Just as the two previous emphases, Empowered! and 
Called and Accountable, served as catalysts in assessing spiritual 
energy and reponse to God's call, Lead On! asks our WMU Members 
and Leaders to look in a mirror: asking, what image do we see? Is 
the image clear? Is the image true to biblical standards? How does 
a woman determine which skills she needs to improve. 

Also, several years ago, WMU chose as its emphasis, Multiply 
the Vision. I have had the privilege to .have seen this multiplying of 
a vision in Missions here in our own Ashe County. The last words 
Jesus spoke here on earth to his disciples, including each of us born 
into His Kingdom is found in Matthew 28:18-20. 

"All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. 

Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the 
name of the Father, and of the Son , and the Holy Ghost: 

Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have com- 
manded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of 
the world." 



ASHE BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 145 



These three verses took on a special meaning to me as I am sure 
they did with our other volunteers going to Brazil and to West Virginia 
and our witnessing to our own families and neighbors. 

In the past year some of our associational WMU activities have 
been: 

1. Mission's Fair at Fletcher Memorial 

2. Pastor /Wife Appreciation Dinner 

3. Christmas in July 

4. Mission Workshops 

Also, there has been three churches in the association to 
organize the WMU Mission Program: 

1. South Beaver Baptist Church 

2. Welcome Home Baptist Church 

3. Pleasant Home Baptist Church

YOUTH COUNCIL REPORT 

The Ashe Baptist Youth Council sponsored WITNESS from the 
Pesonal Evangelism Department of the Baptist State Convention. 
The WITNESS 1991 concerts were great; however, attendance was 
down from the previous years. In 1991, we saw no professions of faith, 
but there were some rededications. 

The Youth Council also sponsored Kids' Day 1991 which pro- 
vided fun and fellowship for kids age 12 and younger. 

Youth Night 1992 was held at West Jefferson First Baptist 
Church with a student from Gardner-Webb College as the speaker. 
Dwight Easier delivered a timely message to his peers. Special music 
was by the SOUNDS OF JOY from Mount Vernon Baptist Church. 

On behalf of the Youth Council, I would like to thank the chur- 
ches of the Association for financial support, prayer, and 
participation. 

Continue to pray for the Youth Council as we attempt to met 
the needs of youth and equip the churches to minister more effec- 
tively to youth. Pray that God will continue to bless as we provide 
activities and share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with young people.

Jim Rash, Chairman

IN MEMORIAM 



It is altogether fitting and proper for this association to pause 
for a few minutes and pay tribute to those who have been called to 
join the ASSEMBLY OF THE REDEEMED in Heaven. May we ever 
remember our deceased friends who took heed to what the Master 
said in John 11:25-26, when He said, "I am the resurrection and the 
life; he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live; 
and whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die."

"his Lord and Master Jesus Christ. 
He will surely be missed for many years.

WARRENSVILLE BAPTIST CHURCH 

A Brief History 



Warrensville Baptist Church was originally a part of Forest Home 
Baptist Church located in the vicinity of Northwest Ashe High School. 
The membership of Forest Home had dropped to about nine members. 
It was then decided to tear the church down and move it to the pre- 
sent site in Warrensville. The church was torn down and rebuilt in 
Warrensville in approximately 1929. The church was renamed 
Warrensville Baptist. 

The church at Warrensville began to grow and a larger sanctuary 
was needed. In the fall of 1950 at a regular business meeting, it was 
decided to tear the old church down. Before the meeting was over most 
of the inside had been torn down. In October of 1950, ground was bro- 
ken for the new sanctuary. Services were held in the old school build- 
ing in Warrensville while the church was being rebuilt. After much 
hard work and giving on the part of the church members, the present 
sanctuary was dedicated September 29, 1957. Rev. R.C. Ashley was 
serving as the church's pastor. 

Warrensville has been blessed with many fine pastors; Rev. R.C. 
Ashley, Rev. William Shiflett, Rev. Larry Lefler, Rev. Raymond 
Brown, 1966-68, Rev. Lynn Gardner 1969-70, Rev. Lester Boyd 1970- 
73, Rev. William Rice 1974-77, Rev. Jerry Burleson 1977-89, and Rev. 
Rick Anderson is now serving as pastor. 

The church continued to grow and more space was needed. On 
July 9, 1980 the church voted to begin work on a new educational 
building and fellowship hall. After much hard work and sacrificial giv- 
ing, this new building was dedicated to the Lord on April 29, 1984. 

Warrensville Baptist Church is now in the process of renovating 
the church sanctuary. We hope to have this completed later this fall. 
With the Lord's help and Christian dedication, Warrensville will con- 
tinue to be a growing church.

LANDMARK BAPTIST CHURCH 

A Brief History 

In 1856, 137 years ago, Silas Creek Community changed forever 
when Landmark Baptist Church, originally called, "The Old 
Landmark Church" was established. 

The early church was made up of members from Baptist Chapel, 
and Mt. Pleasant churches. The meetings were held in the old Silas 
Creek school house near the home of James M. Barker, and continued 
there until the members felt the need to have a separate building in 
which to worship. 

In 1911, during the early ministry of Rev. W.E. Denny, work 
began on the present building because the old building was inade- 
quate to accommodate the members. Therefore, it was necessary to 
build a larger and better building. The church has made great 
progress over the last eighty-two years. In 1953, the remodeling of the 
church began under the leadership of Rev. Joe Paisley and continued 
under the leaderships of Rev. Alvin Howell and Rev. Lawrence 
Goodman. Since then many improvements were made as they were 
needed. In the 1980's under the leadership of Rev. W.H. Caldwell a 
building fund was set up to begin the early plans to build a Fellowship 
Building on land that was donated to the church. Under the leader- 
ship of our present pastor, Rev. David Testerman, the Fellowship 
Building was completed in 1992. In a special service in October, 1992 
the building was dedicated to former pastors: Rev. W.E. Denny and 
Rev. W.H. Caldwell. 

Listed below are the names of former and present pastors, dea- 
cons and clerks of Landmark Church. Space will not allow the listing 
of the many Sunday School leaders, teachers, and faithful members 
who have contributed greatly in the growth and development of our 
church. 

Pastors: James S. Loyd, S. Tribel, H.B. Brown, S. Blackburn, D. 
Smith, Wm. Baldwin, A. Blevins, A. Johnson, E. Ayers, S. Ross, J.F. 
Fletcher, E. Tucker, CM. Michael, J.T. Glenn, G.J. Henderson, W.F. 
Barker, J.C. Blevins, S.C. Blackburn, W.E. Denny, J.D. Sexton, Roe 
Paisley, Luther Shumate, Alvin P. Howell, B.L. Hash, Lawrence 
Goodman, Sam Testerman, Dan Tuell, W.H. Caldwell and our present 
pastor Rev. David Testerman. 

Deacons: J.C. Jones (Calvin), James Testerman, A. Barker,

Linda Blevins, and our present clerk, Celia Wright. Sherrie 
McElhaney is serving as treasurer. 

Landmark Baptist Church has been a shining light in the Silas 
Creek Community for many years. It was founded by members who 
had a strong faith in God, and desired to see people come to know 
Jesus as their personal Saviour. It is our hope and prayer that this 
foundation will always be the basis for Landmark Baptist Church as 
time goes on.

Addendum I - ARTICLES OF FAITH 

(The Baptist State Faith and Message as adopted 

by the Southern Baptist Convention in 1963) 

THE BAPTIST FAITH AND MESSAGE 
A statement adopted by the Southern Baptist Convention 



H^gM^f: 



»KS£? '■-- -"- ~ 






Baptist are a people who profess a living faith. This faith is root- 
ed and grounded in Jesus Christ who is "the same yesterday and 
today and forever." Therefore, the sole authority for faith and practice 
among Baptists is Jesus Christ whose will is revealed in the Holy 
Scriptures. 

A living faith must experience a growing understanding of truth 
and must be continually interpreted and related to the needs of each 
new generation. Throughout their history Baptist bodies' both large 
and small, have issued statements of faith which comprise a consen- 
sus of their beliefs. Such statements have never been regarded as 
complete, infallible statements of faith, nor as official creeds carrying 
mandatory authority. Thus this generation of Southern Baptists is in 
historic succession of intent and purpose as it endeavors to state for 
its time and theological climate those articles of the Christian faith 
which are most surely held among us. 

Baptists emphasize the soul's competency before God, freedom in 
religion, and the priesthood of the believer. However, this emphasis 
should not be interpreted to mean that there is an absence of certain 
definite doctrines that Baptists believe, cherish, and with which they 
have been and are now closely identified. 

It is the purpose of this statement of faith and message to set 
forth certain teachings which we believe.

THE SCRIPTURES 

The Holy Bible was written by men divinely inspirited and is 
the record of God's revelation of Himself to many. It is a perfect trea- 
sure of divine instruction. It has God for its author, salvation for its 
end, and truth, without any mixture of error, for its matter. 

Ex. 24:4; Deut. 4:1-2; 17:19; Josh. 8:34; Psalm 19:7-10; 
119:11,89; 105; 140; It reveals the principles by which God judges us; 
and therefore is, and will remain to the end of the world, the true cen- 
ter of Christian union, and the supreme standard by which all human 
conduct, creeds, and religious opinions should be tried. The criterion 
by which the Bible is to be interpreted is Jesus Christ. 

Isa. 34:16; 40:8; Jer. 15:16; 36; Matt. 5:17-18; 22-29; Luke 
21;33;44-46; John 5:5:39; 16:13-15; 17:17 Acts 2:16 ff; 17:11; Rom. 15:4 
16:25-26; 2 Tim 3:15-17; Heb. 1:1-2; 4:12, 1 Peter 1:25; 2 Peter 1:19- 
21. 

GOD 

There is one and only one living and true God. He is an intel- 
ligent, spiritual, and personal Being, the Creator, Redeemer, 
Preserver, and Ruler of the universe. God is infinite in holiness and 
all other perfections. To Him we owe the highest love, reverence, and 
obedience. The eternal God reveals Himself to us a Father, Son, and 
Holy Spirit, with distinct personal attributes, but without division of 
nature, essence, or being. 

A. GOD THE FATHER 

God as Father reigns with providential care over His universe, 
His creatures and the flow of the stream of human history according 
to the purpose of His grace. He is all powerful, all loving, and all wise. 
God is Father in truth to those who become children of God through 
faith in Jesus Christ. He is fatherly in His attitude toward all men. 

Gen. 1:1; 2:7; Ex. 3:14; 6:2-3; 15:11 ff; 20:1 ff; Lev. 22:2; Deut.

Col. 1:15; 1 Tim. 1:17; Heb. 11:6; 12:9; 1 Peter 1:17, 1 John 5:7. 

B. GOD THE SON 

Christ is the eternal Son of God. In His incarnation as Jesus 
Christ he was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin 
Mary. Jesus perfectly revealed and did the will of God, taking upon 
Himself the demands and necessities of human nature and identifying 
Himself completely with mankind yet without sin. He was raised from 



ASHE BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 105 



the dead with a glorified body and appeared to His disciples as the 
person who was with them before His crucifixion. He ascended into 
Heaven and is now exalted at the right hand of God where he is the 
One Mediator, partaking of the nature of God and of man and whose 
Person is effected the reconciliation between God and man. He will 
return in power and glory to judge the world and to consummate His 
redemptive mission. He now dwells in all believers as the living and 
ever present Lord.

7-9; Rev. 1:13-16; 5:9-14; 12:10-11; 13:8; 19:16. 

C. GOD THE HOLY SPIRIT 

The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God. He inspired holy men of 
old to write the scriptures. Through illumination He enables me to 
understand truth. He exalts Christ. He convicts of sin, of righteous- 
ness and of judgement. He calls men to the Saviour, and effects regen- 
eration. He cultivates Christian characters, comforts believers, and 
bestows the spiritual gifts by which they serve God through His 
church. He seals the believers unto the day of final redemption. His 
presence in the Christian is the assurance of God to bring the believ- 
ers into the fullness of the stature of Christ. He enlightens and 
empowers the believer and the church in worship, evangelism, and 
service.

MEN 

Man was created by the special act of God, in his own image, 
and is the crowning work of His creation. In the beginning man was 
innocent of sin and was endowed by His Creator with freedom of 



106 ASHE BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 



choice. By his free choice man sinned against God and brought sin into 
the human race. Through the temptation of Satan man transgressed 
the command of God, and fell from his original innocence; whereby his 
posterity inherit a nature and an environment inclined toward sin, 
and as soon as they are capable of moral action become transgressors' 
and are under condemnation. Only the grace of God can bring man 
into His holy fellowship and enable man to fulfill the creative purpose 
of God. The sacredness of human personality is evident in that God 
created man in His own image, and in that Christ died for man; there- 
fore, every man possesses dignity and is worthy of respect and 
Christian love. 

Gen. 1:26-30; 2:5, 7; 18-22; 3; 6-9; Psalm 1; 8:3-6; 32:1-5; 51:5; 
Isa. 6:5; Jer. 17:5; Matt. 16:26; Acts 17:26-31; Rom. 1:19, 32; 3:10-18; 
23, 5; 6; 12; 19; 6:6; 7:14-25; 8:14-18; 1 Cor. 1:21-31; 15:19; 21-22; Eph. 
2:1-22; 3:9-11. 

SALVATION 

Salvation involves the redemption of the whole man, and is 
offered freely to all who accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour, who 
by His own blood obtained eternal redemption for the believer. In its 
broadest sense salvation includes regeneration, sanctification, and 
glorification. 

A. Regeneration, or the new birth, is a work of God's grace 
whereby believers become new creatures in Christ Jesus. It is a 
change of heart wrought by the Holy Spirit through conviction of sin, 
to which the sinner responds in repentance toward God and faith in 
the Lord Jesus Christ. 

Repentance and faith are inseparable experiences of grace. 
Repentance is a genuine turning from sin toward God. Faith is the 
acceptance of Jesus Christ and commitment of the entire personality 
to Him as Lord and Saviour. Justification is God's gracious and full 
acquittal upon principles of His righteousness of all sinners who 
repent and believe in Christ. Justification brings the believer into a 
relationship of peace and favor with God. 

B. Sanctification is the experience, beginning in regeneration, 
by which the believer is set apart to God's purposes, and is enabled to 
progress toward moral and spiritual perfection through the presence 
and power of the Holy Spirit dwelling in him. Growth in grace should 
continue throughout to regenerate a person's life.

GOD'S PURPOSE AND GRACE 

Election is the gracious purpose of God, according to which he 
regenerates, sanctifies, and glorifies sinners. It is consistent with the 
free agency of man, and comprehends all the means in connection 
with the end. It is a glorious display of God's sovereign goodness, and 
is infinitely wise, holy, and unchangeable. It excludes boasting and 
promotes humility. 

All true believers endure to the end. Those whom God has 
accepted in Christ, and sanctified by His Spirit, will never fall away 
from the state of grace, but shall persevere to the end. Believers may 
fall into sin through neglect and temptation, whereby they grieve the 
Spirit, impair their graces and comforts, bring reproach on the cause 
of Christ, and temporal judgements on themselves, yet they shall be 
kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation.

THE CHURCH 

A New Testament church of the Lord Jesus Christ is a local 
body of baptized believers who are associated by convenant in the 
faith and fellowship of the gospel, observing the two ordinances of 
Christ, committed to His teachings, exercising the gifts, rights, and 
privileges invested in them by His Word, and seeking to extend the 
gospel to the ends of the earth. 

This church is an autonomous body, operating through demo- 
cratic processes under the Lordship of Jesus Christ. In such a congre- 
gation members are equally responsible. Its Scriptural officers are 
pastors and deacons. 

The New Testament speaks also of the church as the body of 
Christ which includes all of the redeemed of all ages.

BAPTISM AND THE LORD'S SUPPER 

Christian baptism is the immersion of a beliver in water in the 
name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. It is an act of obe- 
dience symbolizing the believer's faith in a crucified, buried, and risen 
Saviour, the believer's death to sin, the burial of the old life,„and in the 
resurrection to walk in newness of life in Christ Jesus. It is a testi- 
mony to his faith in the final resurrection of the dead. Being a church 
ordinance, it is prerequisite to the privilege of church membership and 
to the Lord's supper. 

The Lord's Supper is a symbolic act of obedience whereby 
members of the church, through partaking of the bread and the fruit 
of the vine, memorialize the death of the Redeemer and anticipate His 
second coming.

THE LORD'S DAY 

The first day of the week is the Lord's Day. It is a Christian 
institution for regular observance. It commemorates the resurrection 
of Christ from the dead and should be employed in exercises of wor- 
ship and spiritual devotion, both public and private, and by refraining 
from worldly amusements, and resting from secular employments, 
work of necessity and mercy only being excepted.

THE KINGDOM 

The Kingdom of God includes both His general sovereignty 
over the universe and His particular kinship over men who willfully 
acknowledge Him as King. Particularly the Kingdom is the realm of 
salvation into which men enter by trustful, childlike, commitment to 
Jesus Christ. Christians ought to pray and to labor that the Kingdom 
may come and God's will be done on earth. The full consummation of 
the Kingdom awaits the return of Jesus Christ and the end of this age.

LAST THINGS 

God, in His own time and in His own way, will bring the world 
to its appropriate end. According to His promise, Jesus Christ will 
return personally and visibly in glory to the earth; the dead will be 
raised; and Christ will judge all men in righteousness. The unright- 
eous will be consigned to Hell, the place of everlasting punishment. 
The righteous in their resurrected and glorified bodies will receive 
their reward and will dwell forever in Heaven with the Lord.

EVANGELISM AND MISSIONS 

It is the duty and privilege of every follower of Christ and of 
every church of the Lord Jesus Christ to endeavor to make disciples of 
nations. The new birth of man's spirit by God's Holy Spirit means the 
birth of love for others. Missionary efforts on the part of all rests thus 
upon a spiritual necessity of the regenerate life, and is expressly and 
repeatedly commanded in the teachings of Christ. It is the duty of 
every child of God to seek constantly to win the lost to Christ by per- 
sonal effort and by all other methods in harmony with the gospel of 
Christ. 

Gen. 12:1-3; Ex. 19:5-6; Isa. 6:1-8; Matt. 9:37-38; 10:5-15;

EDUCATION 

The cause of education in the Kingdom of Christ is co-ordinate 
with the causes of missions and general benevolence, and should 
receive along with these the liberal support of the churches. An ade- 
quate system of Christian schools in necessary to a complete spiritual 
program for Christ's people. 

In Christian education there should be a proper balance 
between academic freedom and academic responsibility. Freedom in 
any orderly relationship of human life is always limited and never 
absolute. The freedom of a teacher in a Christian school, college, or 
seminary is limited by the preeminence of Jesus Christ, by the author- 
itative nature of the Scriptures, and by the distinct purpose for 



110 ASHE BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 



which the school exists.

STEWARDSHIP 

God is the source of all blessings, temporal, and spiritual; all 
that we have and are we owe to Him. Christians have a spiritual 
debtorship to the whole world, a holy trusteeship in the gospel, and a 
binding stewardship in their possessions. They are therefore under 
obligations to serve Him with their time, talents, and material pos- 
sessions; and should recognize all these as entrusted to them to use 
for the glory of God and for helping others. According to the 
Scriptures, Christians should contribute of their means cheerfully, 
regularly, systemically, proportionately, and liberally for the advance- 
ment of the Redeemer's cause on earth.

Cor. 8-9; 12:15; Phil. 4:10-19; 1 Peter 18:19. 

COOPERATION 

Christ's people should, as occasion requires, organizes such 
associations and conventions as may best secure cooperation for the 
great objects of the Kingdom of God. Such organizations have no 
authority over one another or over the churches. They are voluntary 
and advisory designated to elicit, combine, and direct the energies of 
our people in the most efficient manner. Members of New Testament 
churches should cooperate with one another in carrying forward the 
missionary, educational, and benevolent ministries for the extension 
of Christ's Kingdom. Christian unity in the New Testament sense is 
spiritual harmony and voluntary cooperation for common ends by var- 
ious groups of Christ's people. Cooperation is desirable between the 
various Christian denominations, when the end to be attained is itself 
justified, and when such cooperation involves no violation of con- 
science or compromise of loyalty to Christ and His Word as revealed 
in the New Testament.

THE CHRISTIAN AND THE SOCIAL ORDER 

Every Christian is under obligation to seek to make the will of 
Christ supreme in his own life and in human society. Means and 
methods used for the improvement of society and the establishment of 
righteousness among men can be truly and permanently helpful only 
when they are rooted in the regeneration of the individual by the sav- 
ing grace of God in Christ Jesus. The Christian should oppose in the 
spirit of Christ every form of greed, selfishness, and vice. He should 
work to provide for the orphaned, the needy, the aged, the helpless 
and the sick. Every Christian should seek to bring industry, govern- 
ment, and society as a whole under the sway of the principles of right- 
eousness, truth and brotherly love. In order to promote these ends 
Christians should be ready to work with all men of good will in any 
good cause always being careful to act in the spirit of love without 
compromising their loyalty to Christ and His truth. 

Ex. 20:3-17; Lev. 6:2-5; Deut. 10:12; 27:17; Psalm 101:5; Mic. 
6:8; Zach. 8:16; Matt. 5:13-16; 43-48; 22:36-40; 25:35; Mark 1:29-34; 
2:3 ff; 10:21; Luke 4:18-21; 10:27-37; 20-25; John 15:12; 17:15; Rom. 
12-14; 1 Cor. 5:9-10; 6:1-7; 7:20-24; 10:23 to 11:1; Gal. 3:26-28; Eph. 
6:5-9; Col. 3:12-17; Thes. 3:12; Philemon; James 1:27:2-8. 

PEACE AND WAR 

It is the duty of Christians to seek peace with all men or prin- 
ciples of righteousness. In accordance with the spirit and teachings of 
Christ they should do all in their power to put an end to war. 

The true remedy for the war spirit is the gospel of our Lord. 
The supreme need of the world is the acceptance of His teachings in 
all the affairs of men and nations, and the peaceful applications of His 
laws of love. 

Isa. 2:4; Matt. 5:9; 38-48; 6:33; 26-52; Luke 22:36; 38; Rom. 
12:18-19; 13-1-7; 14:19; Heb. 12:14; James 4:1-2. 

RELIGIOUS LIBERTY 

God alone is Lord of the conscience and He has left it free from 
the doctrine and commandments of men which are contrary to His 
Word or not contained in it. Church and state should be separate. The 
state owes to every church protection and full freedom in the pursuit 
of its spiritual ends. In providing for such freedom no ecclesiastical 
group or denomination should be favored by the state more than oth- 
ers. Civil government being ordained of God, it is the duty of 
Christians to render loyal obedience thereto in all things not contrary 
to the revealed will of God. The church should not resort to the civil 
power to carry on its work. The gospel of Christ contemplates spiritu- 
al means alone for the pursuit of its ends. The state has no right to 



112 ASHE BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 



impose taxes for the support of any form of religion. A free church in 
a free state is the Christian ideal, and this implies the right of free 
and unhindered access to God on the part of all men, and the right to 
form and propagate opinions in the sphere of religion without inter- 
ference by the civil power.

ABSTRACT OF PRINCIPLES 

1. We believe in one true and living God, and that there are three 
persons in the God-Head; the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost, 
and these three are one. 

2. We believe that the Bible, the Old and New Testament, is the 
Word of God and the Only rule of Faith and practice. 

3. We believe in the impotency of man and the sovereignty of 
God. 

4. We believe that Salvation is by Grace through Faith in our 
Lord Jesus Christ. 

5. We believe that Baptism and the Lord's Supper are ordinances 
instituted by Jesus to be practiced only by believers in their spiritual 
order. 



ASHE BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 121 



6. We believe that Baptism is the immersion of a believer in 
water by a qualified administrator, and that those who are thus bap- 
tized and are in fellowship with the church in feeling and doctrine 
should take the Lord's Supper. 

7. We believe in the final perserverance of the Saints in Grace 
and Glory. 

8. We believe in a separate resurrection and judgment, both 
for the righteous, and unrighteous dead. 

9. We believe that the existence of the righteous and the 
wicked will both be of eternal duration, and that the happiness of the 
righteous and the punishment of the wicked will both be eternal.

CHURCH COVENANT 

Having been led as we believe, by the Spirit of God, to receive 
the Lord Jesus Christ as our Saviour, and on profession of our faith, 
having been baptized in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and 
of the Holy Ghost, we do now, in the presence of God, angels and the 
assemble, most solemnly and joyfully enter into this covenant with 
one another, as one body in Christ. 

We engage, therefore, by the aid of the Holy Spirit, to walk 
together in Christian love; to strive for the advancement of this 
church, in knowledge, holiness and comfort to promote its prosperity 
and spirituality; to sustain worship, ordinances, discipleship and doc- 
trines; to contribute cheerfully and regularly to the support of the 



122 ASHE BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 



ministry, the expenses of the church and the relief of the poor; and the 
spread of the Gospel through all nations. 

We also engage to maintain family and secret devotions; to reli- 
giously educate our children; to seek the salvation of our kindred and 
acquaintances; to walk circumspectly in the world; to be just in our 
dealing, faithful in our engagements, and exemplary in our depart- 
ment; to avoid all tattling, back biting, and excessive anger, to abstain 
from the sale and use of intoxicating drinks as a beverage, and to be 
zealous in our efforts to advance the kingdom of our Saviour. 

We further engage to watch over one another in brotherly love; 
to remember each other in prayer; to aid each other in sickness and 
distress; to cultivate Christian sympathy in feeling and courtesy in 
speech; to be slow to take offense but always ready for reconciliation; 
and mindful of the rule of our Saviour to secure it without delay. 

We moreover engage that when we remove from this place we 
will, as soon as possible, unite with some other church, where we can 
carry out the spirit of this covenant and the principles of God's Word.

1993 ANNUITY BOARD REPORT 



The Annuity Board focuses on the care and protection of God's 
messengers. It strives to ensure all pastors, other ministers and eligi- 
ble church and association employees, with their families, have ade- 
quate income for retirement and adequate insurance protection 
including life, disability, and medical coverages. 

As the first quarter of 1993 ended, 35,309 persons serving 20,062 
churches were participating in the Church Annuity Plan. This is the 
highest number of members in the history of the Plan. 

While these statistics reveal progress, far too many of God's ser- 
vants are not protected or have inadequate protection. God's word 
clearly teaches us to provide for His called servants. The Annuity 
Board challenges churches and associations to be faithful to God's 
instruction. 

The Church Annuity Plan provides financial security before and 
after retirement. Its Protection Section includes valuable disability 
and survivor benefits funded by state convention Cooperative 
Program dollars. 

A recommendation: The minister or employees agrees to con- 
tribute 5% of pay (plus housing); the Church agrees to contribute a 2 
for 1 match (10%) of pay (plus housing). The percentages may vary, 
and maximum contribution limits are set by the law. The church, by 
entering into a Cooperative Agreement certified by the state conven- 
tion, may make it possible for the member to receive state convention 
matching contributions. 

The Church Life and Health Program provides excellent insur- 
ance protection. There have been no medical rate increase since July 
1992, and no increase is anticipated this year. Work is continuing to 
allow us to offer a Health Maintenance Organization (HMO) to the 
program. 

For 75 years the Annuity Board has served those who serve the 
Lord. If we may serve you, call us toll-free: 1-800-262-0511. 

At present, there are 22 of the 50 churches in the Ashe Baptist 
Association participating in the Southern Baptist Annuity Program.

BAPTIST CHILDREN'S HOMES REPORT 

Baptist Children's Homes in 1992-93 served 1,453 children 
and their families through programs of intentionalized services at 13 
facilities across North Carolina. 

Those facilities include four residential care campuses; seven 
emergency care homes; two homes for behaviorally troubled girls; 
therapeutic camping for boys; a maternity home; a home for teen-age 
mothers and their babies and a model daycare facility. 

Baptist Churches, through the Thanksgiving Offering, 
Cooperative Program and direct gifts funded about one-third of BCH's 
$10 million budget. A significant source of income continues to be from 
estate gifts from those who remember children in their wills. 

BCH's model daycare service took a giant step June 27 when 
the new $1 million, 10,000 sq. ft. Fleshman-Pratt Early Childhood 
Education Center was dedicated. It will accommodate 75 infants, tod- 
dlers and two-year olds. 

During dedication, Robin Britt, N.C. Secretary of the NC 
Department of Human Resources, said BCH is "a true model of how 
young children can be shaped, nurtured and loved," and that "we will 
be looking at institutions like the Fleshman-Pratt Early Childhood 
Education Center as we find models to replicate." 

T. Winfleld Blackwell, president of the Fleshman-Pratt 
Foundation, whose lead gift started construction of the building, said, 
"Think how many children will be raised and shaped by the dedicated 
staff who serve here, and surely a goodly number will be developed, 
not only to be good citizens, but active ministers in God's service." 

Churches interested in beginning or improving their daycare 
ministry can get free help from director May Lou Dickey. Call (919) 
472-3503. 

BCH also dedicated a counselor's lodge at Cameron Boys 
Camp; completed a strategic planning cycle for the next three years; 
celebrated the 50th anniversary of Odum Home in Pembroke; com- 
pleted a three-year partnership with the Baptist Children's Homes of 
Sao Paulo, Brazil; and produced a new video about BCH, available 
Aug. 15. 

Swelling with emotion at the dedication of her new building, 
Daycare Services Director Mary Lou Dickey promised, "we will not 
fail" those who trust BCH with their children. 

Michael C. Blackwell, who celebrated his 10th anniversary as 
president of BCH Julyl, echoes that promise. "Baptist Children's 
Homes has been a cutting-edge ministry for North Carolina Baptists 
since 1885. As a disintegrating society moves the edges further and 
further, we're honing our ministry sharper and sharper. Thank you, 
North Carolina Baptists, for your support."

BAPTIST SUMMER CAMP REPORT 

This year has been both challenging and rewarding for the 
Camp. There has been the challenge of keeping the facility neat and 
clean and in good repair. There has been the reward of having it well- 
used and well-supported by the churches. Putting these two together, 
the Committee has this year had a successful work day in the Spring, 
and hired individuals to make repairs and do regular cleaning at the 
camp. 

We still want the churches and individuals to clean up after 
themselves and haul off their own garbage when they leave, and we 
will still have the spring work-day, but probably not the one in 
autumn. We will again put the mowing schedule in the Associational 
calendar for next season. Churches and individuals outside the asso- 
ciation will not be able to schedule the campground until April, which 
will give our churches the first opportunity for its use. Please keep 
this in mind and schedule the campground as early as possible.

NORTH CAROLINA BAPTIST FOUNDATION, INC. 
ANNUAL REPORT 

The North Carolina Baptist Foundation works diligently in ser- 
vice to Christ as directed by the agency's Mission Statement: 

"The North Carolina Baptist Foundation is an agency of the 
Baptist State Convention of North Carolina committed under the 
guidance of the Holy Spirit to serving North Carolina Baptists and 
others in generating an increased awareness of Christian estate stew- 
ardship principals as a means of financially undergirding churches, 
institutions and mission endeavors on a permanent basis. 

And further, the Baptist Foundation Staff and Board of Directors 
are committed to being scrupulously moral, legal, efficient and accu- 
rate in carrying out the intent of each donor and trustor whose funds 
are placed under management of the Foundation as a means of sus- 
taining a tangible and perpetual involvement in presenting the 
Gospel, meeting human needs and strengthening all bodies of 
Christian fellowship where Christ is the Head." 

The total market value of the assets of the Foundation at the end 
of 1992 was $41,880,638., an increase of almost $5.6 million over the 
end of 1991. Typically, assets are either held as endowments paying 
interest income in perpetuity to named Baptist causes, or they are 
held in trust with current income being paid to individuals and future 
income to be paid to Baptist causes in perpetuity. Additionally, the 
Foundation offers fund management for Baptist causes on a revocable 
basis. 

Earned income distributed and paid to Baptist churches, institu- 
tions & mission causes during fiscal year 1992 $1,182,203. 

Earned income distributed and paid to individuals (with Baptist 
causes named as future beneficiaries) during the fiscal year 1992 

$1,024,007. 

In 1992, and continuing into 1993, the Long Range Planning 
Committee of the Board of Directors met extensively to lay the 
groundwork for the Foundation's goals and objectives for the next five 
years. The previous five years were require successful with ambitious 
financial goals being met early on. It is anticipated that the Board's

BAPTIST HOSPITAL REPORT 



The latest report of the North Carolina Database Commission 
comparing hospital major service charges vs. Baptist Hospital reveals, 
for our most frequent diagnoses: Duke - 36% higher, Carolina's 
Medical Center (Charlotte) - 36.5% higher, UNC-Chapel Hill - 28% 
higher. We are one of only 17 similar hospitals nationally with a "AA" 
bond credit rating. 

Averaging the last two years and the projection for 1993, the 
Consumer Price Index will average 3.9% and the Medical CPI will 
average 9.7%. Baptist Hospital charge increases for the same period 
will average 3.3%, well under both the above mentioned indexes. 

The Nursing Center at Oak Summit opened July, 1993. This 
170-bed facility provides skilled and intermediate care. The center 
will be one of only a few in the state to provide care for ventilator- 
dependent patients. 

Under construction at the present time to be completed by June, 
1995, this facility will total 750,000 square feet. Our current ER was 
designed to handle 29,000 patients annually, but is handling more 
than 40,000. Our new ER capacity will be 70,000 annually. This build- 
ing will also house three floors of patient private rooms, our Pharmacy 
Dept, and a 35-bed Day Hospital, new kitchen and cafeteria. 

Last year Baptists across our state gave $422,000 to our annual 
Mother's Day offering. All of these monies went toward relieving the 
financial burden of scores of former patients who have little or no 
health insurance and no financial means to pay their hospital bills. 
The churches and individuals help make this ministry possible and we 
are grateful. 

The Joint Commission on Accredition of Healthcare 
Organizations ranks Baptist Hospital in the top 9% of all hospitals in 
the nation. We performed our first pancreas transplant and first dou- 
ble organ transplant (pancreas and kidney) this year. 

We are one of only 26 comprehensive cancer care centers in the 
nation, treating more cancer patients than any hospital from 
Baltimore, MD to Atlanta, GA. 

Quality infant through adolescence care in our Brenner 
Children's Hospital. 

Our neonatal transport team is the largest in North Carolina 
and one of the 10 largest in U.S. 

Our Level I (highest awarded) Trauma Center has 2,100 admis- 
sions a year.

BAPTIST MEN REPORT 



The waters in Missouri and Illinois are finally starting to recede 
and the clean-up and recovery process is finally beginning. North 
Carolina Baptist Men have been working on ways for volunteers to 
respond. There is a need for volunteers to help in Hardin, Illinois the 
weeks of August 23-27 and Aug. 30-Sept. 3rd. Groups will need to 
arrive on Sunday and leave on Saturday morning. We will need 100 
volunteers each week. Teams that can come completely self-contained 
in RVs and campers would be best for Hardin, however there will be 
limited housing on a first come first serve basis. Meals will be provid- 
ed by the Disaster Van. The work is primarily mudding out homes and 
clean-up. This is very hard dirty work and volunteers should expect 
long days without many comforts of home. It is recommended that all 
volunteers have an updated tetanus shot and if possible typhoid and 
hepatitus A vaccines. 



BIBLICAL RECORDER 

The only thing that is unchangeable is change itself! For most of 
us it is impossible to comprehend the radical and often destructive 
changes which are taking place in our world. In politics, morals, eco- 
nomics and church life, our Baptist world is faced with decisions and 
issues without equal. 

Whatever one's view may be, there is an indispensable need for 
correct and reliable information. The Biblical Recorder was born and 
continues to serve for that purpose. Never was the Recorder more 
needed than now. 

People are reading less than any time in recent history. It is true 
of secular publications, it is true of wholesome books from respected 
libraries, it is true of religious publications. We live in an electronic 
age where we often think we know the answers to the issues only to 
discover we do not. 

An informed Baptist is a better Baptist; an uninformed Baptist 
may be an uninvolved or disruptive Baptist. No democracy, including 
our local churches, can survive long without an informed, involved 
constituency which makes decisions based upon accurate information 
from reliable sources. 

The most important thing facing us at this point is to get the 
Recorder into more Baptist homes than ever before. Your support as 
a subscriber and reader and your encouragement to others will enable 
the paper to better serve the constituency with accurate and helpful 
information delivered to Baptist homes and churches. We need your 
help! 

In order to save churches large amounts of money and to 



130 ASHE BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 



increase the readership of the Recorder. Church News Service (CNS) 
was launched in 1990. This system lets any congregation have their 
church newsletter incorporated into the Biblical Recorder which 
saves staff time, postage and printing costs. Usually, for less than 
what it costs to produce the church newsletter, CNS gives the entire 
Baptist communication package to each family in the congregation. 
Anticipated increases in mailing costs makes CNS a greater value in 
1994 than even when it was started in 1990. 

The paper focuses more and more attention on North Carolina 
Baptists with news, features and inspirational articles which will 
encourage individuals and churches in their witness and ministry. 
One sure way to conquer problems and overcome the barriers to effec- 
tive witness and ministry is to have the facts, know the issues and be 
adequately informed. 

That is why the Recorder was born; that is why it serves today.

BAPTIST RETIREMENT HOMES 

Did you know that: 

In 1993, North Carolina reached place number ten (10) among 
all the states in the United States in regard to the size of its adult pop- 
ulation over the age of sixty-five (65). 

That one-half of all the people who have ever lived to be sixty- 
five (65) are now living. 

The fastest growing segment of North Carolina Baptist life is 
composed of those adults eighty-five (85) and older and that by the 
year 2000 that age category will double in size. 

That by the year 1996 North Carolina's "Baby Boomers" will be 
turning fifty-five (55) every 18 seconds. 

That by the year 2010 one out of every two people living in North 
Carolina will be fifty(50) years of age or older? 

What do figures like those above mean for North Carolina 
Baptists? 

They point to the fact that one of the greatest needs facing our 



ASHE BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 131 



Convention as we move into the year 2000 is the provision of quality, 
affordable long-term services to functionally impaired Older Adults 
through the expansion of existing long-term care facilities, and 
through the development of creative approaches to long-term care 
such as rural home health services, community care programs, and 
respite programs for homebound care providers. 

In an attempt to meet the above mentioned need, Baptist 
Retirement Homes of North Carolina, Inc., in 1993: 

Opened the Rickman Nursing Care Center in Asheville, North 
Carolina (a 100 bed Medicaid certified nursing care facility). 

The Rickman Center is a state-of-the-art long-term care facil- 
ity that has been developed to meet the needs of the poor elderly in 
Western North Carolina. (80% of the resident population will be recip- 
ients of benevolent funding). 

Renovated the Albemarle Baptist Home in Stanly Baptist 
Association and renamed it the Taylor House. The Taylor House has 
non financial requirements for admission and is designed to provide 
care resident, regardless of his/her ability to pay for the long-term 
care services provided. 

Developed a new addition to the Brookridge Health Care Unit 
in Winston-Salem in order to provide an area for small group work 
with residents suffering from dementia. This state-of-the-art program 
will enable Baptist Retirement Homes' staff to improve the quality of 
life experienced by members of its resident community who are men- 
tally impaired. 

Baptist Retirement Homes is keenly aware of the fact that 
without the support of North Carolina Baptists none of the above 
would have been possible. As a result of the prayers and funding that 
the "Homes" receives through the Cooperative Program and the North 
Carolina Offering For Older Adults, it has been able to offer hope to 
many Older Adults whose future would have been uncertain without 
the caring involvement of North Carolina Baptists. It is because of you 
that our institution has been able to make life for many Older Adults 
in 1993.. ..The Best of Times. 

Thank you North Carolina Baptists for your support!

CHRISTIAN ACTION LEAGUE 

The* Christian Action League is a voluntary organization com- 
posed of concern citizens brought together to oppose those destructive 
influences in society which contributes to the low level of public moral- 
ity existing today. The league is dedicated to strengthening laws 
against gambling, alcohol and commercialized vice in its many forms 
while emphasizing the basic importance of spiritual and moral values 
to the development and growth of the individual, the local community 
and the nation as a whole. 

The Ashe County Chapter of The Christian Action League pro- 
motes an ongoing educational program to inform our citizenry of the 
ethical and moral issues that are facing our community and state dur- 
ing these times. We urge that Christians voice their concern with the 
level of violence portrayed in the media and to voice our opposition to 
efforts to legalize para-mutual betting and gambling in our state. We 
urge our churches to inform the public of the great social and economic 
cost of legalized beverage alcohol, and to stand firm against the use of 
tax monies to fund abortion as a means of birth control. 

League goals for 1993-1994 include the following: 

A. To organize against the legalization of the lottery in North 
Carolina. 

B. To make Christians aware of the influence of the media on the 
lives of our young people. 

C. To lobby against the legal sale of beverage alcohol in our coun- 
ty and state. 

D. To eliminate alcoholic advertisements in the media. 

To attain these goals, we need the active cooperation of all those 
individuals who wish to promote Christian values in our community. 

We invite all like-minded citizens to join us in furthering the 
course of civic and social righteousness and promoting the highest 
standards of Christian morality in the lives of our people.

CHRISTIAN ACTION LEAGUE OF NC 

As this report is being prepared, we are in the midst of a battle 
with the gambling industry. NC has been targeted for legalized gam- 
bling by the $2 billion gambling industry since our state is the largest 
one in the nation without legalized gambling. 

When the General Assembly convened on January 27th for its 



ASHE BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 133 



1993 session, the gambling industry has already hired 14 of the most 
influential and effective lobbyists that money can buy to "peddle" their 
influence for gambling legislation. 

As of this date, the NC Senate has passed Senate Bill 11, The 
State Lottery Act, by a vote of 27-23. With a swing of just two votes, 
this state-operated lottery measure could have been defeated. The 
proposal is now before the NC House. How does your NC House mem- 
ber stand on this issue? The vote in the House is going to be very close 
as it was in the Senate, and your legislator could make the difference. 
This legislation will pave the way for the state to go into the gambling 
business, and this is not a proper role of government to say the least. 

There is also a pari-mutel gambling proposal (horse racing with 
off-track betting parlors) before the General Assembly. The Senate 
Bill has already passed a Senate Committee and is currently in the 
Senate Finance Committee. The House Bill has also passed a House 
Committee and is currently in the House Appropriations Committee. 

Someone has said: "The only lesson we learn from history is that 
we don't learn from history." North Carolina had an experienced with 
pari-mutel gambling with dog tracks in Currituck and Carteret 
Counties in the early 1950's. The NC Supreme Court closed them 
down as being a public nuisance. 

Perhaps there is no industry that is "riddle" with corruption as 
much so as the gambling industry. Last year we had legislators indict- 
ed in SC for accepting bribes from gambling lobbyists. Some 10 pub- 
lic officials have pled "scam," and 12 others are under investigation. 
In Arizona, legislators have gone to prison due to a gambling scandal. 
We have had a Governor from West Virginia and one from Maryland 
to go to prison due to a gambling scandal in their respective states. 
Wherever you find legalized gambling, undoubtedly, you will find cor- 
ruption in government. 

DRUNK DRIVING: When you deal with politicians, tenacity is a 
key. For ten years, we have sought legislation that would establish .08 
as the standard for drunk driving in North Carolina. In the past, we 
were able to get such legislation through the House, but the Senate 
was the graveyard. The measure would always be referred to a hostile 
Senate Committee composed largely of trial lawyers, and that would 
be "death" to such a proposal. 

With a change in Senate leadership, that legislation will become 
law on October 1, 1993, which will be a useful tool in helping to 
remove drunk drivers from the highways. 

The League continues to assist local communities in combating 
our No. 1 drug problem, alcohol. Let us know if a liquor referendum is 
to be held in your area, and we will be ready to help. 

Thank you for standing with us in the cause of Applied 
Christianity. 

Sincerely, 

Joe S. Lennon, President Coy C. Privette, Exe. Director

Another Associational year has come and gone and only eternity 
will reveal the results. It becomes more difficult year by year not to 
play church or relinquish the major part of our lives to the secular and 
trivial. "The mystery of iniquity doth already work — ," and its most 
successful work is in keeping Christians too busy taking care of busi-

DISCIPLESHIP TRAINING REPORT 

The purpose of the Discipleship Training Team of the Ashe 
Baptist Association is to promote Discipleship Training in our associ- 
ation. Discipleship is the Christian's lifelong commitment to the 
Person, teaching, and Spirit of Jesus Christ. Life under Jesus' lord- 
ship involves progressive learning, growth in Christ-likeness, applica- 
tion of Biblical truth to every area of life, responsibility for sharing the 
Christian faith, and responsible church membership. It is the goal of 
the team to have discipling happening in all our churches. 

Discipleship Training in Ashe Association saw an increase in 
enrollment and in the number of churches participating in 
Discipleship Training last year. We are thankful for the churches that 
continue to have a strong Discipleship Training, as well as those 
churches that are just beginning a Discipleship Training program. 
Discipleship does make a difference. Churches with Discipleship 
Training excell in three major areas: Sunday School enrollment, bap- 
tisms, and Cooperative program giving. 

There is now a large range of materials available for training in 
all areas from Family Life, to Deacon Ministry, from Counseling to 
Healthful Living, from Experiencing God to church membership, and 



136 ASHE BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 



so much more! Discipleship Training can happen any time, day or 
night. It can be an on-going process or a training for a specific length 
of time. There are materials available for all age-groups, with a large 
range of topics. 

Christians have unlimited possibilities for spiritual growth and 
the responsibility for that growth. It is our desire for churches to pro- 
vide their members with the resources they need for this growth, "till 
we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son 
of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the full- 
ness of Christ."

EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE REPORT 

The Executive Committee has had another busy year. It was not 
just another year. It had to deal with some controversial issues. 

It is a honor to meet and work with the People of the Association. 

During our meetings we had an average church attendance of 25. 

Each church is encouraged to attend and participate in your 
association in the coming year. Each church is to be represented by 
the pastor and one Executive Committee member.

FOREIGN MISSIONS REPORT 

In 192 Southern Baptists joined believers in 129 countries to 
share the rich message of Christ's forgiveness. Just as for the last 148 
years, that message brought a bountiful harvest: 

NEW LIFE - Through churches related to Southern Baptist 
efforts, 1992 proved to be another record-setting year for baptisms 
around the world: 251,901. This represents almost an 8 percent 
increase over the previous year. Also, 1992 was the fourth year since 
1987 during which worldwide baptisms set a new record. 

NEW FELLOWSHIPS - Another record setter: 1,606 churches 
were born in 1992. This 5.8 percent increase in one year demonstrates 
the aims of the Foreign Mission Board, which strives for continual 
evangelism through the establishment of churches. 

NEW STRENGTH IN CONGREGATIONS - The total number of 
churches relating to Southern Baptist foreign missions crested in the 
30,000 mark for the first time, finishing with 32,797 by the end of 
1992. This represents a growth of more than 17 percent in one year 
(some of the growth noted here and in church membership includes 
already-existing churches among Baptists who become partners with 
Southern Baptists in 1992, such as believers in parts of the former 
Soviet Union). 

NEW FAMILY MEMBERS - Overseas churches recorded a 15.5 
percent increase in members in just one year, bringing total member- 
ship to 3,450,900. The total crossed the 3 million barrier for the first 
time in Southern Baptist foreign missions history. 

NEW PLACES TO HEAR THE GOSPEL - Baptist churches 
around the globe extended their witness with an addition of 1,153 
more "preaching points," bringing this total to 23,889. Many of these 
preaching points will become the Baptist churches of tomorrow. 

NEW HELP FROM HOME - For the fourth year in a row, more 
than 10,000 Southern Baptist volunteers traveled on a short-term 
basis around the world to share their faith. The volunteer total 



138 ASHE BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 



reached 11,343. These lay people and pastors utilized scores of skills 
while working alongside missionaries and overseas Baptists. 

NEW HOPE FOR EVANGELISM - Churches relating to 
Southern Baptist foreign missions continued to grow through winning 
new followers for Christ. These churches baptized an average of one 
new believer for every 12 church members in 1992. This ratio is more 
than three times greater than the same evangelism comparison for 
Southern Baptist churches in the United States. 

NEW MISSIONARIES AT THE TASK - The Foreign Mission 
Board appointed 414 missionaries, bringing the total mission force to 
3,893. These servants embodied the love of Christ in 129 countries 
and also assisted Christian outreach in another 27 countries. This is 
cause for rejoicing, yet because of retirements, resignations and com- 
pletions of service, the total mission force at the end of 1992 was actu- 
ally lower than 199 l's ending total - only the third such drop in 20 
years. Pray that many new missionaries will hear God's call in the 
coming years. 

NEW LIFE FROM THE COMMUNIST RUBBLE - Missionaries 
have established partnership and ministry relations with the fast- 
growing Baptist churches in Ukraine, Belarus and Russia. This 
means helping more than 1,350 churches that worship in these former 
Soviet republics. 

As you prayed for missions in 1992, you gave millions of dollars 
through the Cooperative Program and the Lottie Moon Christmas 
Offering. You also sent special financial gifts for world hunger and 
relief. 

The Lottie Moon Christmas Offering reached its highest total 
ever - more than $81.4 million given for world evangelism and min- 
istry. In 1992, more than $69 million came to the Foreign Mission 
Board through the Cooperative Program, which has been the lifeblood 
of Southern Baptist mission work since 1925. This amount represents 
a decrease from Cooperative Program gifts in 1990 and 1991. 

Southern Baptists responded to a hurting world with $7.4 mil- 
lion for relief and hunger needs through the World Relief Fund. 

Foreign missions efforts continued with milestone results in 
1992. Southern Baptist missionaries went in all directions to spread 
the good news of Jesus Christ. Their travels took them into the heart 
of the world's problems - hunger, war, ethnic strife, ignorance and 
hopelessness.

HOME MISSION BOARD REPORT 

The Home Mission Board (HMB) is a missionary-sending agency 
of the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC). Headquartered in Atlanta, 
Ga., the HMB's purpose is to serve Southern Baptists by assisting 
churches to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ, start and grow New 
Testament congregations, and minister to people in the name of 
Christ. 

At the end of last year, 4,868 missions personnel were serving in 
the United States, the Caribbean, American Samoa, and Canada. The 
HMB also had endorsed more than 2,200 chaplains who were serving 
in healthcare agencies, institutions, businesses, the military, and pas- 
toral-care roles. More than 2,400 Mission Service Corps volunteers 
were serving on home mission fields. During the year there were 
367,847 baptisms and 1,281 church starts. 

Approximately half the HMB's support comes from individual 
SBC churches through the annual Annie Armstrong Easter Offering 
for Home Missions. In 1992, gifts to the offering totaled $37.61 mil- 
lion, up almost 6 percent from the 1991 total. One hundred percent of 
the offering goes to support the work of home missionaries in the field. 
The 1993 Annie Armstrong Easter Offering goal is $38 million. About 
36 percent of the HMB's income comes from the denomination's 
Cooperative Program. 

Home missions is a partnership of the HMB's state conventions, 
associations, and churches. The HMB's strategy is to help start 
churches, ministry endeavors, and evangelism efforts that will grow to 
self-support or be carried on by local churches or associations. 

The following is a summary of program/support ministry high- 
lights from 1992. 

Chaplaincy Minister - The 2,293 Southern Baptists now serv- 
ing as chaplains and pastoral counselors reported 24,000 professions 
of faith and 4,600 baptisms. 

Alternatives to Abortion - Workers in 23 crisis pregnancy cen- 
ters received training from the HMB. As a result of the ministry of 
these centers, 2,164 babies were born and 832 women found faith in 
Christ. 

Church Loans - More than 1,100 churches had active loans 
totaling $115 million. These loans purchased, refinanced, remodeled, 
or constructed 106 buildings and purchased 9 building sites. 

Language Missions - Home missionaries and pastors in the 
Language Church Extension Division serve among 102 ethnic groups 
using 98 languages and dialects. 

Personal Evangelism - During the Southern Baptist 
Convention in Indianapolis, 1353 volunteers canvassed 45,235 resi- 
dences, conducted a religious survey, and shared the gospel with 2,905 
individuals, 361 of whom made professions of faith. 

Prayer and Spiritual Awakening - A national team began 



140 ASHE BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 



efforts to enhance effective prayer and revival ministries in churches. 
The Intercessory Prayerline grew from 7,500 calls in 1985 to 130,000 
last year: 

Volunteers - Over 71,000 Southern Baptist adults, college stu- 
dents, and youth group members volunteered for long and short term 
projects. More than 58,000 volunteers responded to disaster relief 
efforts in Florida, Louisiana, and Hawaii. 

Special Ministries - Southern Baptists minister to seamen in 
37 port cities and 200 missionaries are involved in ministries related 
to college students, resorts, special events, and diplomats.

PREACHERS' CONFERENCE REPORT 

The pastor doesn't have many opportunities to sit in the pew 
and hear a fellow minister preach. He spends much time in sermon 
preparation which involves much prayer and the seeking of God's will 
as to what God would have him share with His people. Hearing a fel- 
low minister preach God's Word is just one of the blessings of attend- 
ing the monthly Preacher's Conference. There is a blessed fellowship 
present among the pastors. Objects of prayer are shared at each meet- 
ing. Pastors share with each other what God is doing in and through 
their ministry. It's a time that each of us look forward to. Please join 
your fellow ministers for this time of fellowship and inspiration. We 
meet each second Saturday morning at 10:30 in designated churches. 
Your life and ministry will be enriched.

SEMINARY EXTENSION REPORT 

The Ashe Baptist Christian Studies Center got off to a good start 
this year with fifteen students completing the course, "Understanding 
the Bible." This course is the first of six leading to a certificate in 
Biblical Studies. The next course to be taught is "Overview of the Old 
Testament, Part I." This course is a survey of Genesis through Esther. 
Rev. Jack Pugh will be teaching this course beginning the week of 
September 13, 1993. 

Seminary Extension is an important ministry of Southern 
Baptists. It gives those who are unable to go to college or community 
college an opportunity to learn more about God's Word, without 



ASHE BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 141 



having to go to great expense to do so. If you are a Sunday School 
teacher, preacher, or a person who just wants to know more about the 
Word of God, you are invited to be a part of the Ashe Baptist Christian 
Studies Center. 

In His Service, 
Rev. Rick Anderson

STATE MISSIONS REPORT 

North Carolina Baptists have never faced a greater challenge for 
missions than is before us today. Over 2,000,000 people in North 
Carolina are unchurched. More than 50,000,000 people visit our 
resort areas every year, each one representing an opportunity to share 
the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Our state is becoming a haven for families 
who want to settle between the cold winters of the north and the hot 
summers of Florida. Many of these families are unchurched. The 
number of people with special needs, continues to grow. Our prisons 
are bulging with over 20,000 inmates. The multi-ethnic population of 
the state is growing faster than any other segment of our population. 
Already over 100,000 Hispanics have settled in our state. The Asian 
segment of our population will grow by over forty percent by the year 
2000. Many of the multi-ethnics calling North Carolina home are 
without Christ as Lord and Savior. 

Assisting churches and associations of the Baptist State 
Convention in reaching people for Christ and ministering to them is 
the task of the Mission Division. Our mandate comes from the 
Baptists of the state who hold missions up as a cornerstone of our 
Baptist Heritage. The Division organizes its work through its depart- 
ments to meet the mission needs of the state. 

Over 100 Southern Baptist Chaplains in the state are supported 
through the chaplaincy work of the division. New language missions 
are started in our language department and existing ones are contin- 
uously supported. We now have 97 language-mission churches in the 
state. People with hearing impairments are assisted through our deaf 
ministries. We have several deaf churches in the state. Our special 
ministries work also touches the lives of visually impaired and men- 
tally handicapped people. Seminary extension courses are offered 
through over 100 training centers in the state. Bi-vocational ministers 
receive special assistance for their work. Eighty-four new mission- 
type churches were started in Anglo communities last year. Existing 
churches that are plateaued or declining receive special assistance for 
assessing current needs and projecting long-range possibilities. Multi- 
housing communities are touched through consultants who work 
across the state. The work of Baptist Associations is strengthened 
through the association development programs of the division. 
Through training Mission Development Councils, Baptists all over the 
state are discovered in that every Christian can be a missionary. 
Families in military communities experience the love of Christ 
through our military ministries. 

"The fields are white unto harvest" . . . and the Mission Division 
of the Baptist State Convention seeks to point to the fields and lead 
Baptists in reaping the harvest. Your continued support tjirough the 
Cooperative Program and the State Mission Offering is essential to 



ASHE BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 143 



achieving the vision Christ set before us.

love. The results coming in this year are "Shining." I appreciate each

goes to our own Associational VBS team. I could not ask for any group 
of people better to work with. I also need to say a special thanks to

WOMAN'S MISSIONARY UNION REPORT 



The task of praying for missions seems Big. How is it possible 
that I have a part in it? What difference could my prayer make in such 
a tremendous task as spreading the gospel all over the world? 

Missions might be defined as the total plan of God, seeking to 
redeem His human creations and establish His kingdom on earth. 
Missions is the people of God on earth. Missions is the people of God 
on assignment, proclaiming God's love to the world. They are demon- 
strating His care, because the church is the body of Christ... touching, 
listening and speaking. God is both the Sender and One Sent. He 
came to the earth in human form to draw people to Himself. When His 
time on earth was finished, He left the church with the task of com- 
pleting the work. But He did not leave them alone. He sent the Holy 
Spirit, who has worked through the ages and is working today, fulfill- 
ing that mission. 

Missions is the business with which we are the church are 
charged, the errand we have been given to do, the duty assigned from 
on high. It is the Lord's commission to us to bring glory to Him and 
share the good news of His love with the world. Missions is much more 
than a program, a new church, a language congregation, an evangelist 
proclaiming the love of God in a country thousands of miles away. It 
is Christians telling a lost world that God loved you so much He sent 
His only Son, That you might not perish, but have eternal life." 

The suggestions of specific prayers for missionaries could go on 
and on. One of the most natural ways of identifying is simply to ask: 
What needs do my friends and I have? If you are lonely or discouraged, 
so is a missionary. When your children leave for college, a missionar- 
ies; kids leave for college too. Remember, your prayers are not 



ASHE BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 145 

molding a super - human. You are helping a very real person deal 
with life. 

There it is! A missionary's name. So, how do we pray? A mis- 
sionary might tell you to pray for everything from A to Z.

YOUTH COUNCIL REPORT 

The members of the Ashe Baptist Youth Council join together 
praising the Lord for another successful year in youth ministry. 

In July of 1992, the musical, "The Greatest Star of All" was pre- 
sented by the international touring company of New Life Ministries. 
This presentation was an excellent outreach to children and families, 
and as a result, we saw four professions of faith. 

The Youth Council also sponsored Kids' Day 1993 which provid- 
ed fun and fellowship for kids age 12 and younger. 

Youth Night 1993 was held at Friendly Grove Baptist Church 
with the Reverend Jeff Davis who presented a multi-media seminar 
on the dangers of the New Age movement and challenged us to 
respond with a Christian worldview. At the invitation over 80 young 
people responded. We saw three professions of faith, other youth 
rededicating their lives, but the majority made a commitment to the 
Lord to remain sexually pure until marriage. 

Join with us in prayer as we anticipate an area-wide Youth Rally 
with the Reverend Ken Smith of Gainesville, Fla. The date is set for 
May 17-19, 1994. This really has the potential to reach every junior 
and senior high student in Ashe County. Pray that God will open the 
doors and provide the resources needed for this outreach. 

On behalf of the Youth Council, I would like to thank the church- 
es of the Association for financial support, prayer, and participation. 

Continue to pray for the Youth Council as we attempt to meet 
the needs of youth and equip the churches to minister more effective- 
ly to youth. Pray that God will continue to bless as we provide activi- 
ties and share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with young people.

CONSTITUTION AND BY-LAWS COMMITTEE 

(meeting 4/13/93) 

As requested by the Executive Committee of the Ashe Baptist 
Association, the Constitution and By-Laws Committee has studied 
the guidelines dealing with the ordination of pastors and deacons. 
After studying this matter, the committee has found that the Articles 
of Faith, the Constitution and By-Laws deal with this subject ade- 
quately. 

The Constitution and By-Laws committee recommend that 
leadership of the Association not be involved in dealing with local 
church matters that deal with accusations of improperity. The local 
church should solve these problems on the local level.

lose the vistory. (3) It is sustaining - there are better things ahead. (4) 
It is inspiring - to go on and do more. We need to go out and conquer

can do to be that church. "First, we must rediscover the power of the 

word of God If we want people to be saved and know the saving 

grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, it will be by the power of the word of 
God". "Second, we must rediscover the necessity of prayer.... The 
church that will grow and be what God wants it to be will have to 
learn how to pray. If the divine Son of God felt the need to pray how 
much more should we feel the need to pray". Thirdly, "We must redis- 
cover the ministry of the Holy Spirit.... A church is nothing more than 
a social organization if it is not filled with the Spirit of God.... We 

should want to see the souls of man saved Our churches need to be 

filled, controlled and motivated by the Holy Spirit of God." And fourth- 
ly, "Rediscover the missions of the church" "One soul is worth more 

than all of the world. We should have conviction for the souls of men. 
Jesus poured himself out upon this earth in that he have everything 

according to the will and purpose of God" We need to know how 

to forgive". Rev. Goodman asked, "Do you really want to be that 
church"? "Bow to the Lordship of the Lord Jesus Christ". He asked 
everyone to come around the altar for prayer and offered the closing 
prayer. 

Clea Caparolie, a member of Midway Baptist Church and a stu-

154 ASHE BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 

Rev. Lloyd Day, Chairman of a Committee on Reconciliation 
appointed by the Moderator pursuant to a motion made at the April 
Executive Committee meeting, read the following statement: 

"1 Tim. 3:2 states that a deacon must be the husband of one 
wife, ruling their children and their Own Houses well. 1 Cor. 11:3 
tells us that the head of the woman is the man. Eph. 5:23-24 says that 
the husband is the head of the wife even as Christ is the head of the 
church... Therefore, as the Church is subject to Christ, so let the wives 
be to their own husbands in everything. 

This is sufficient to show that according to the Scriptures a 
deacon must be a man. Number 2 of the Abstracts of Principles of 
the Constitution of the Ashe Baptist Association states that we 
believe the Bible is the only rule of faith and practice, so it is clear 
that to ordain a woman deacon is Scripturally and Constitutionally 
irregular in practice. 

First Baptist Church of West Jefferson has ordained a woman 
deacon. The Executive Committee of our Association, in its April 
1993 session appointed a committee to investigate this action, pur- 
suant to Article I, Section 4 of the Associational Constitution. Thus 
far First Baptist has refused to meet with, or respond to, the commit- 
tee concerning its action. 

Therefore, pursuant to Article 8, Section 1 of the 
Constitution, I move that the Ashe Baptist Association withdraw fel- 
lowship from First Baptist in the prayerful hope that such will help it 
to see its error and rescind its unscriptural action." 

Rev. Day then made the motion to withdraw fellowship from 
West Jefferson First Baptist Church, seconded by Colonel Blevins. 
Discussion by Rev. David Testerman, Rev. Roger Newton. 

Ms. Glenna Johnson asked to speak but stated she was not a 
delegate. Rev. Steve Witherspoon made a motion to allow her to 
speak, seconded by Jesse Barrington, motion was denied by a fifty- 
three to forty seven vote. 

Additional discussion by Rev. Lawrence Goodman, Frank 
Colvard, Rev. David Testerman, Rev. Victor Church. 

Rev. Steve Witherspoon made a motion, which was duly sec- 
onded, to allow Lloyd Johnson, who was not a delegate, to speak. This 
motion was denied by a fifty-six to twenty-six vote. 

Additional discussion by Rev. Ken Morris, Jesse Barrington, 
Walter Blevins, and Rev. J.E. Owens. 

Rev. Lawrence Goodman made a motion, which was duly sec- 
onded, to end the debate, which motion was voted on and carried. 

The vote on the motion to withdraw fellowship from West 
Jefferson First was taken with fifty-five yes votes and thirty-nine no 
votes. The motion carried. 

Rev. Lawrence Goodman stood and stated that in light of the 
action taken he must withdraw his fellowship from the Association 
and stand with his sister church. Rev. Goodman left the meeting. 

Rev. Johnny Goodman stated he felt we should have the right 



ASHE BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 155 



to ask questions of representatives from our institutions who come to 
speak. Rev. Goodman made a motion that we ask people to stay and 
answer questions, seconded by Rev. David Testerman, voted on and 
carried. 

Rev. Jack Pugh asked to speak and stated, "I am not anybody's 
adversary. West Jefferson, Bald Mountain, Long Branch I am not an 
adversary. I am a friend and will still serve any way that I can. I am 
going to be a friend to everyone I can. When I can serve, in or out of 
the Association, I desire to do so." 

Rev. David Wellborn stated that we need to be looking forward 
to our future and what the Lord has in store for us, and "I love every- 
one here". 

Wilma Phipps of Sturgills Church, asked that those speaking 
please indentify themselves and their church since we don't always 
know everyone. 

Congregation lead in the singing of "Amazing Grace" by Scott 
and India Privette. 

Special singing provided by The Sonlighters. 

Morning Message delivered by Rev. Carroll Arant, Pastor of 
Fletcher Memorial Baptist Church, who used as scripture Luke 
14:16-35. Rev. Arartt spoke on discipleship and the qualifications for 
discipleship. He stated, "first, have no person before Jesus - by our life 
style we show who we love the most. Whose disciple are you? Who do 
you love more than you love the Lord? .... Secondly, we must carry our 

cross the cross we must carry is what is God's will for our life. We 

have to let God work out his plan in our life." 

Rev. Arant continued, "thirdly, there is a cost. We need to know 
the cost in serving Jesus. What did it cost God to save us? We need to 

acknowledge the price of Jesus for our salvation every day Count 

the cost of disobedience. How much have we grown in the Lord since 
we were saved?.... And fourthly We must have a commitment. Jesus 
would have us to live right. We pray to God to forgive. Are you plac- 
ing God's plans or priorities first in your life?.... There is no possession 
we can put before Jesus." He concluded, "A Christian that is not a dis- 
ciple is not of good service to God. He wants us to serve him, to reach 
out to others, to bring him glory and joy. What kind of disciple are 
we?" 

Rev. Arant also led in prayer. 

Host pastor, Rev. David Testerman gave instructions for being 
served lunch and Rev. Ken Furches asked the blessing on the food. 

After a delicious lunch provided by the ladies of Landmark 
Baptist Church the afternoon session began with the singing of 
"Savior Like a Shepherd Lead Us" lead by Scott and India Privette.

ning with verse one. Rev. Owens spoke on Elijah and his servant 
Elisha and stated, "God told Elijah he still had work for him to 

do Aren't you glad God still has work for you to do?" "God never 

calls us to do a task that He won't give us the power to do it We 

need to go to a place of cleansing every day of our life that we might 

be cleansed by Him to the place of prayer every day This is the 

place we find the will of God in our lives It is the place where faith

THE 1994 ANNUAL 

OF THE 

ASHE BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 

IS DEDICATED TO THE MEMORY OF 



Rev. Earl Hartzog 




Rev. Earl Hartzog was born September 20, 1994. He was 
married to Mary Miller on September 19, 1947. To this union 
was born two sons, Clay and Kenneth. There are 3 grandchil- 
dren. 

Rev. Hartzog possessed a great zeal for souls. Only heaven 
knows the number of those who came to accept Christ through 
and by the ministry of this man. Surely he will hear that "well 
done." 

He served the following churches during his ministry, Pine 
Swamp, West Pine Swamp, Bethel, Blue Ridge, North Beaver, 
South Beaver, Chestnut Hill, Three Forks, and Bristol. 

Rev. Hartzog passed away on April 20, 1994. May God bless

GLENDALE SPRINGS 
MISSIONARY BAPTIST CHURCH 

A Brief History 

Glendale Springs Missionary Baptist Church was founded on 
March 14, 1914. The following paragraph was taken directly from the 
record book of the church: 

"A revival meeting was held at the school house beginning 
March 14, 1914. there begin much interest manifested by 
the brethren and community at large, it was deemed expedi- 
ent to organize a church, on March 19, 1914 a body often 
members constituted a Missionary Baptist Church, with 
full power to transact any and all business that any other 
church of the same faith has. On Sunday, March 22, 1914, 
after a continuation of eight days, during which time 
thirty-five souls professed faith in Christ, forty-one 
joined the church. " 

These early members constructed a church building and meeting 
swere held there until the late 1950's and early 1960's when a new 
brick church building was completed. During the construction of the 
new brick building, meetings were held at the Glendale School build- 
ing. During the following years, Sunday School rooms were added and 
the sanctuary was enlarged. In 1990 a fellowship hall was completed. 
In 1993 the church began a major renovation of the sanctuary. 
Improvements included new stained glass windows, Oak pews, car- 
peting and enlarging the sanctuary to seat more people. The church 
purchased the adjoining property for new parking areas and future 
expansion. 

The church has been blessed with many great men of God to pas- 
tor our church. E. Z. Sexton, Wesley Eldreth, Finley Miller, and 
Garland Hutton were some of the early ministers. Rev. Paul Phipps 
served as pastor for 17 years. The next minister was Joe Riley Blevins, 
followed by Brian Eades, Jerry Winkler, and our present pastor, Rev. 
Keith Elledge. 

Through the preaching of the Gospel, the continuous love and 
leadership of our pastors, we have seen our church grow in the Spirit 
and in membership. Precious souls have come to know Christ as their 
personal Saviour. With God's guidance and the prayers of the people, 
Glendale Springs Missionary Baptist Church will continue to uplift 
and provide a place of worship for the community. Several generations 
of members have passed away, but their dependents are still active in

the church today. We welcome anyone to come and worship with us.

PHOENIX BAPTIST CHURCH 

A Brief History 

Berlin Baptist Church was organized May 9, 1908, by members 
taking letters from Forest Home Baptist Church at Warrensville, 
North Carolina. Forest Home was located near the mouth of Buffalo 
Creek where Northwest High School is now located. Members from 
the Berlin and Lansing areas felt somewhat isolated from the church 
because they had to cross the New River by boat or on horseback. 
Sometimes the river was too full, and they were unable to get to 
church. 

The first home of Berlin Baptist Church was a small private 
school building in the Berlin Community. It was located near the pre- 
sent church site. The little school building has been donated by James 
Eller Sr. to his three sons for the purpose of educating his grandchil- 
dren and his neighbors' children. With the coming of the larger state- 
supported school, the little school building was no longer needed for 
schooling purposes. However, it proved to be an ideal place for the peo- 
ple to meet for worship. Following two or three great revivals in the 
little school building, a presbytery was called to organize a new 
church. The presbytery was composed of Elders Elihu Tucker, R.L. 
Shofa, T. W. Carter and L. J. Day. Charter members consisted of 17 
men and 18 women:

The first pastor of Berlin Baptist Church was Elder Elihu Tucker. 
During World War I, the post office name was changed from Berlin to 
Bina. James Eller Sr., who had given the little school house and the 
land it was built on, did not like the name "Bina" for the church. At 
his suggestion, the church voted to change the church name to 
"Phoenix" for the Phoenix Mountain which stands close by. Soon the 
little schoolhouse was too small for the worshippers, and a larger 
building was needed. At the same time, the Norfolk and Western 
Railroad was buying right-of-ways for rail service into Ashe County. 
The three Eller brothers sold a right-of-way through the property to 
the Norfolk and Western Railroad and used the proceeds from the 
sale to buy supplies for a new church building. In 1914 a comfortable 
house of worship was completed. The little school building had 
served its purpose. It was sold and moved off the property. The 
church continued to grow, with a total membership of 98 by 1930. 

Since then there have been three major renovations to the 
church. The first was the addition of three Sunday School rooms and 
the excavation of a small basement. Some time later a furnace was 
added. Later, in the very early 60's seven rooms and a hall were 
added, the basement was enlarged and the wood siding was replaced 
with brick. In the early 70's the parking lot was fully paved and the 
church adopted a constitution and purchased its first van for out- 
reach service. Charter member Mrs. Gertrude Eller Waddell partici- 
pated in a June '91 groundbreaking service for a new fellowship hall 
and education building. Her words reflect her own life and the life of 
the church, "Never start anything you can't finish, and never finish 
anything you can't give God the glory for." The fellowship hall is 
complete, and construction is continuing in phases, with a baptistry 
planned for the very near future. 

The last two charter members were siblings: Mr. Jess Eller died 
in 1983; in 1991 Mrs. Gertrude Eller Waddell died at the age of 99 
in an automobile accident on her way to church. 

Through the years 16 pastors have served Phoenix Baptist

The Church Today 

Present church membership is 170. Sunday School and worship 
services are held each Sunday with discipleship training and choir 
practice following on Sunday evening. Other services include mid- 
week prayer and Bible study. Active WMU and Brotherhood organi- 
zations minister to the needs of the church and the community. 

The church is currently without a pastor. Due to health reasons, 
Rex Eldreth resigned as pastor early this year. We are praying for 
God's guidance as we seek a new pastor. 
August 1994.

Addendum I - ARTICLES OF FAITH 

(The Baptist State Faith and Message as adopted 

by the Southern Baptist Convention in 1963) 

THE BAPTIST FAITH AND MESSAGE 
A statement adopted by the Southern Baptist Convention 




Baptist are a people who profess a living faith. This faith is root- 
ed and grounded in Jesus Christ who is "the same yesterday and 
today and forever." Therefore, the sole authority for faith and practice 
among Baptists is Jesus Christ whose will is revealed in the Holy 
Scriptures. 

A living faith must experience a growing understanding of truth 
and must be continually interpreted and related to the needs of each 
new generation. Throughout their history Baptist bodies' both large 
and small, have issued statements of faith which comprise a consen- 
sus of their beliefs. Such statements have never been regarded as 
complete, infallible statements of faith, nor as official creeds carrying 
mandatory authority. Thus this generation of Southern Baptists is in 
historic succession of intent and purpose as it endeavors to state for 
its time and theological climate those articles of the Christian faith 
which are most surely held among us. 

Baptists emphasize the soul's competency before God, freedom in 
religion, and the priesthood of the believer. However, this emphasis 
should not be interpreted to mean that there is an absence of certain 
definite doctrines that Baptists believe, cherish, and with which they 
have been and are now closely identified. 

It is the purpose of this statement of faith and message to set 
forth certain teachings which we believe. 



104 ASHE BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 



THE SCRIPTURES 

The Holy Bible was written by men divinely inspirited and is 
the record of God's revelation of Himself to many. It is a perfect trea- 
sure of divine instruction. It has God for its author, salvation for its 
end, and truth, without any mixture of error, for its matter. 

Ex. 24:4; Deut. 4:1-2; 17:19; Josh. 8:34; Psalm 19:7-10; 
119:11,89; 105; 140; It reveals the principles by which God judges us; 
and therefore is, and will remain to the end of the world, the true cen- 
ter of Christian union, and the supreme standard by which all human 
conduct, creeds, and religious opinions should be tried. The criterion 
by which the Bible is to be interpreted is Jesus Christ. 

Isa. 34:16; 40:8; Jer. 15:16; 36; Matt. 5:17-18; 22-29; Luke 
21;33;44-46; John 5:5:39; 16:13-15; 17:17 Acts 2:16 ff; 17:11; Rom. 15:4 
16:25-26; 2 Tim 3:15-17; Heb. 1:1-2; 4:12, 1 Peter 1:25; 2 Peter 1:19- 
21. 

GOD 

There is one and only one living and true God. He is an intel- 
ligent, spiritual, and personal Being, the Creator, Redeemer, 
Preserver, and Ruler of the universe. God is infinite in holiness and 
all other perfections. To Him we owe the highest love, reverence, and 
obedience. The eternal God reveals Himself to us a Father, Son, and 
Holy Spirit, with distinct personal attributes, but without division of 
nature, essence, or being. 

A. GOD THE FATHER 

God as Father reigns with providential care over His universe, 
His creatures and the flow of the stream of human history according 
to the purpose of His grace. He is all powerful, all loving, and all wise. 
God is Father in truth to those who become children of God through 
faith in Jesus Christ. He is fatherly in His attitude toward all men. 

Gen. 1:1; 2:7; Ex. 3:14; 6:2-3; 15:11 ff; 20:1 ff; Lev. 22:2; Deut. 
6:4; 32:6; 1 Chron. 29:10; Psalm 19:1-3; Isa. 43:3; 15:64:8 Jer. 10:10; 
17:13; Matt. 6:9 ff; 7:11; 23:9, 28:19; Mark 1:9-11; John 4:24; 5:26; 
14:6-13; 17:1-8; Acts 1:7; Rom. 8:14-15; 1 Cor. 8:6; Gal. 4:6; Eph. 4:6; 
Col. 1:15; 1 Tim. 1:17; Heb. 11:6; 12:9; 1 Peter 1:17, 1 John 5:7. 

B. GOD THE SON 

Christ is the eternal Son of God. In His incarnation as Jesus 
Christ he was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin 
Mary. Jesus perfectly revealed and did the will of God, taking upon 
Himself the demands and necessities of human nature and identifying 
Himself completely with mankind yet without sin. He was raised from 



ASHE BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 105 



the dead with a glorified body and appeared to His disciples as the 
person who was with them before His crucifixion. He ascended into 
Heaven and is now exalted at the right hand of God where he is the 
One Mediator, partaking of the nature of God and of man and whose 
Person is effected the reconciliation between God and man. He will 
return in power and glory to judge the world and to consummate His 
redemptive mission. He now dwells in all believers as the living and 
ever present Lord.

7-9; Rev. 1:13-16; 5:9-14; 12:10-11; 13:8; 19:16. 

C. GOD THE HOLY SPIRIT 

The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God. He inspired holy men of 
old to write the scriptures. Through illumination He enables me to 
understand truth. He exalts Christ. He convicts of sin, of righteous- 
ness and of judgement. He calls men to the Saviour, and effects regen- 
eration. He cultivates Christian characters, comforts believers, and 
bestows the spiritual gifts by which they serve God through His 
church. He seals the believers unto the day of final redemption. His 
presence in the Christian is the assurance of God to bring the believ- 
ers into the fullness of the stature of Christ. He enlightens and 
empowers the believer and the church in worship, evangelism, and 
service.

MEN 

Man was created by the special act of God, in his own image, 
and is the crowning work of His creation. In the beginning man was 
innocent of sin and was endowed by His Creator with freedom of 



106 ASHE BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 



choice. By his free choice man sinned against God and brought sin into 
the human race. Through the temptation of Satan man transgressed 
the command of God, and fell from his original innocence; whereby his 
posterity inherit a nature and an environment inclined toward sin, 
and as soon as they are capable of moral action become transgressors 
and are under condemnation. Only the grace of God can bring man 
into His holy fellowship and enable man to fulfill the creative purpose 
of God. The sacredness of human personality is evident in that God 
created man in His own image, and in that Christ died for man; there- 
fore, every man possesses dignity and is worthy of respect and 
Christian love.

SALVATION 

Salvation involves the redemption of the whole man, and is 
offered freely to all who accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour, who 
by His own blood obtained eternal redemption for the believer. In its 
broadest sense salvation includes regeneration, sanctification, and 
glorification. 

A. Regeneration, or the new birth, is a work of God's grace 
whereby believers become new creatures in Christ Jesus. It is a 
change of heart wrought by the Holy Spirit through conviction of sin, 
to which the sinner responds in repentance toward God and faith in 
the Lord Jesus Christ. 

Repentance and faith are inseparable experiences of grace. 
Repentance is a genuine turning from sin toward God. Faith is the 
acceptance of Jesus Christ and commitment of the entire personality 
to Him as Lord and Saviour. Justification is God's gracious and full 
acquittal upon principles of His righteousness of all sinners who 
repent and believe in Christ. Justification brings the believer into a 
relationship of peace and favor with God. 

B. Sanctification is the experience, beginning in regeneration, 
by which the believer is set apart to God's purposes, and is enabled to 
progress toward moral and spiritual perfection through the presence 
and power of the Holy Spirit dwelling in him. Growth in grace should 
continue throughout to regenerate a person's life.

GOD'S PURPOSE AND GRACE 

Election is the gracious purpose of God, according to which he 
regenerates, sanctifies, and glorifies sinners. It is consistent with the 
free agency of man, and comprehends all the means in connection 
with the end. It is a glorious display of God's sovereign goodness, and 
is infinitely wise, holy, and unchangeable. It excludes boasting and 
promotes humility. 

All true believers endure to the end. Those whom God has 
accepted in Christ, and sanctified by His Spirit, will never fall away 
from the state of grace, but shall persevere to the end. Believers may 
fall into sin through neglect and temptation, whereby they grieve the 
Spirit, impair their graces and comforts, bring reproach on the cause 
of Christ, and temporal judgements on themselves, yet they shall be 
kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation.

THE CHURCH 

A New Testament church of the Lord Jesus Christ is a local 
body of baptized believers who are associated by convenant in the 
faith and fellowship of the gospel, observing the two ordinances of 
Christ, committed to His teachings, exercising the gifts, rights, and 
privileges invested in them by His Word, and seeking to extend the 
gospel to the ends of the earth. 

This church is an autonomous body, operating through demo- 
cratic processes under the Lordship of Jesus Christ. In such a congre- 
gation members are equally responsible. Its Scriptural officers are 
pastors and deacons. 

The New Testament speaks also of the church as the body of 
Christ which includes all of the redeemed of all ages.

BAPTISM AND THE LORD'S SUPPER 

Christian baptism is the immersion of a beliver in water in the 
name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. It is an act of obe- 
dience symbolizing the believer's faith in a crucified, buried, and risen 
Saviour, the believer's death to sin, the burial of the old life, and in the 
resurrection to walk in newness of life in Christ Jesus. It is a testi- 
mony to his faith in the final resurrection of the dead. Being a church 
ordinance, it is prerequisite to the privilege of church membership and 
to the Lord's supper. 

The Lord's Supper is a symbolic act of obedience whereby 
members of the church, through partaking of the bread and the fruit 
of the vine, memorialize the death of the Redeemer and anticipate His 
second coming.

THE LORD'S DAY 

The first day of the week is the Lord's Day. It is a Christian 
institution for regular observance. It commemorates the resurrection 
of Christ from the dead and should be employed in exercises of wor- 
ship and spiritual devotion, both public and private, and by refraining 
from worldly amusements, and resting from secular employments, 
work of necessity and mercy only being excepted.

2:16; 3:16; Rev. 1:10. 

THE KINGDOM 

The Kingdom of God includes both His general sovereignty 
over the universe and His particular kinship over men who willfully 
acknowledge Him as King. Particularly the Kingdom is the realm of 
salvation into which men enter by trustful, childlike, commitment to 
Jesus Christ. Christians ought to pray and to labor that the Kingdom 
may come and God's will be done on earth. The full consummation of 
the Kingdom awaits the return of Jesus Christ and the end of this age.

LAST THINGS 

God, in His own time and in His own way, will bring the world 
to its appropriate end. According to His promise, Jesus Christ will 
return personally and visibly in glory to the earth; the dead will be 
raised; and Christ will judge all men in righteousness. The unright- 
eous will be consigned to Hell, the place of everlasting punishment. 
The righteous in their resurrected and glorified bodies will receive 
their reward and will dwell forever in Heaven with the Lord.

EVANGELISM AND MISSIONS 

It is the duty and privilege of every follower of Christ and of 
every church of the Lord Jesus Christ to endeavor to make disciples of 
nations. The new birth of man's spirit by God's Holy Spirit means the 
birth of love for others. Missionary efforts on the part of all rests thus 
upon a spiritual necessity of the regenerate life, and is expressly and 
repeatedly commanded in the teachings of Christ. It is the duty of 
every child of God to seek constantly to win the lost to Christ by per- 
sonal effort and by all other methods in harmony with the gospel of 
Christ. 

Gen. 12:1-3; Ex. 19:5-6; Isa. 6:1-8; Matt. 9:37-38; 10:5-15;

EDUCATION 

The cause of education in the Kingdom of Christ is co-ordinate 
with the causes of missions and general benevolence, and should 
receive along with these the liberal support of the churches. An ade- 
quate system of Christian schools in necessary to a complete spiritual 
program for Christ's people. 

In Christian education there should be a proper balance 
between academic freedom and academic responsibility. Freedom in 
any orderly relationship of human life is always limited and never 
absolute. The freedom of a teacher in a Christian school, college, or 
seminary is limited by the preeminence of Jesus Christ, by the author- 
itative nature of the Scriptures, and by the distinct purpose for 



110 ASHE BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 



which the school exists.

STEWARDSHIP 

God is the source of all blessings, temporal, and spiritual; all 
that we have and are we owe to Him. Christians have a spiritual 
debtorship to the whole world, a holy trusteeship in the gospel, and a 
binding stewardship in their possessions. They are therefore under 
obligations to serve Him with their time, talents, and material pos- 
sessions; and should recognize all these as entrusted to them to use 
for the glory of God and for helping others. According to the 
Scriptures, Christians should contribute of their means cheerfully, 
regularly, systemically, proportionately, and liberally for the advance- 
ment of the Redeemer's cause on earth.

Cor. 8-9; 12:15; Phil. 4:10-19; 1 Peter 18:19. 

COOPERATION 

Christ's people should, as occasion requires, organizes such 
associations and conventions as may best secure cooperation for the 
great objects of the Kingdom of God. Such organizations have no 
authority over one another or over the churches. They are voluntary 
and advisory designated to elicit, combine, and direct the energies of 
our people in the most efficient manner. Members of New Testament 
churches should cooperate with one another in carrying forward the 
missionary, educational, and benevolent ministries for the extension 
of Christ's Kingdom. Christian unity in the New Testament sense is 
spiritual harmony and voluntary cooperation for common ends by var- 
ious groups of Christ's people. Cooperation is desirable between the 
various Christian denominations, when the end to be attained is itself 
justified, and when such cooperation involves no violation of con- 
science or compromise of loyalty to Christ and His Word as revealed 
in the New Testament.

THE CHRISTIAN AND THE SOCIAL ORDER 

Every Christian is under obligation to seek to make the will of 
Christ supreme in his own life and in human society. Means and 
methods used for the improvement of society and the establishment of 
righteousness among men can be truly and permanently helpful only 
when they are rooted in the regeneration of the individual by the sav- 
ing grace of God in Christ Jesus. The Christian should oppose in the 
spirit of Christ every form of greed, selfishness, and vice. He should 
work to provide for the orphaned, the needy, the aged, the helpless 
and the sick. Every Christian should seek to bring industry, govern- 
ment, and society as a whole under the sway of the principles of right- 
eousness, truth and brotherly love. In order to promote these ends 
Christians should be ready to work with all men of good will in any 
good cause always being careful to act in the spirit of love without 
compromising their loyalty to Christ and His truth. 

Ex. 20:3-17; Lev. 6:2-5; Deut. 10:12; 27:17; Psalm 101:5; Mic. 
6:8; Zach. 8:16; Matt. 5:13-16; 43-48; 22:36-40; 25:35; Mark 1:29-34;

6:5-9; Col. 3:12-17; Thes. 3:12; Philemon; James 1:27:2-8. 

PEACE AND WAR 

It is the duty of Christians to seek peace with all men or prin- 
ciples of righteousness. In accordance with the spirit and teachings of 
Christ they should do all in their power to put an end to war. 

The true remedy for the war spirit is the gospel of our Lord. 
The supreme need of the world is the acceptance of His teachings in 
all the affairs of men and nations, and the peaceful applications of His 
laws of love. 

Isa. 2:4; Matt. 5:9; 38-48; 6:33; 26-52; Luke 22:36; 38; Rom. 
12:18-19; 13-1-7; 14:19; Heb. 12:14; James 4:1-2. 

RELIGIOUS LIBERTY 

God alone is Lord of the conscience and He has left it free from 
the doctrine and commandments of men which are contrary to His 
Word or not contained in it. Church and state should be separate. The 
state owes to every church protection and full freedom in the pursuit 
of its spiritual ends. In providing for such freedom no ecclesiastical 
group or denomination should be favored by the state more than oth- 
ers. Civil government being ordained of God, it is the duty of 
Christians to render loyal obedience thereto in all things not contrary 
to the revealed will of God. The church should not resort to the civil 
power to carry on its work. The gospel of Christ contemplates spiritu- 
al means alone for the pursuit of its ends. The state has no right to 



1 12 ASHE BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 



impose taxes for the support of any form of religion. A free church in 
a free state is the Christian ideal, and this implies the right of free 
and unhindered access to God on the part of all men, and the right to 
form and propagate opinions in the sphere of religion Without inter- 
ference by the civil power.

CHURCH COVENANT 

Having been led as we believe, by the Spirit of God, to receive 
the Lord Jesus Christ as our Saviour, and on profession of our faith, 
having been baptized in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and 
of the Holy Ghost, we do now, in the presence of God, angels and the 
assemble, most solemnly and joyfully enter into this covenant with 
one another, as one body in Christ. 

We engage, therefore, by the aid of the Holy Spirit, to walk 
together in Christian love; to strive for the advancement of this 
church, in knowledge, holiness and comfort to promote its prosperity 
and spirituality; to sustain worship, ordinances, discipleship and doc- 
trines; to contribute cheerfully and regularly to the support of the 
ministry, the expenses of the church and the relief of the poor; and the 
spread of the Gospel through all nations. 

We also engage to maintain family and secret devotions; to reli- 
giously educate our children; to seek the salvation of our kindred and 
acquaintances; to walk circumspectly in the world; to be just in our 
dealing, faithful in our engagements, and exemplary in our depart- 
ment; to avoid all tattling, back biting, and excessive anger, to abstain 
from the sale and use of intoxicating drinks as a beverage, and to be 
zealous in our efforts to advance the kingdom of our Saviour. 

We further engage to watch over one another in brotherly love; 
to remember each other in prayer; to aid each other in sickness and 
distress; to cultivate Christian sympathy in feeling and courtesy in 
speech; to be slow to take offense but always ready for reconciliation; 
and mindful of the rule of our Saviour to secure it without delay. 

We moreover engage that when we remove from this place we 
will, as soon as possible, unite with some other church, where we can 
carry out the spirit of this covenant and the principles of God's Word.

1994 ANNUITY BOARD REPORT 



While the Sunday School Board, Home Missions Board and 
Foreign Missions Board focus on God's message, the Annuity Board 
focuses on God's messengers. For over 75 years the Annuity Board has 
been serving those who served the Lord. The Annuity Board offers 
security for pastors, other ministers, eligible church and associational 
employees and their families. 

The Personal Security Program offers up-to-date insurance prod- 
ucts to protect against the large and small bumps and scrapes of life. 
The program includes a Term Life Plan, Personal Accident Plan, 
Disability Plan and a choice of Medical Plans. This is a flexible pro- 
gram; coverage can be tailored to meet each family's unique needs. 
Each plan is available alone or in combination with other plans. 

Over 22,000 churches and associational staff members partici- 
pate in the Term Life Plan. They have found this Plan provides the 
protection they need at a cost competitive with comparable plans in 
the marketplace. In this era of rising medical costs, Personal Security 
Program medical rates have not increased since 1992. Nearly 20,000 
Southern Baptist church and associational workers enjoy the protec- 
tion the medical plans provide. 

The Church Annuity Plan provides financial security both before 
and after retirement. Its Protection Section, funded by state conven- 
tion Cooperative Program dollars, includes supplemental disability 
and survivor benefits. State conventions also provide matching retire- 
ment dollars for eligible participants. This Plan, designed by Southern 
Baptist for Southern Baptist churches and associations, provides 
opportunities for tax savings, competitive investment returns and the 
flexibility to meet each participant's special concerns. At the end of 
May 1994, 36,075 participants serving 20,131 churches and associa- 
tions were active in the Church Annuity Plan. 

With $4.4 billion in assets and over 75 years of experience, the 
Annuity Board offers its participants security and stability. The 
Annuity Board recognizes each dollar represents retirement income or 
life and health protection for a Christian servant in the Southern 
Baptist church, association, state convention or agency. The Annuity 
Board's mission is unchanged; it exists to serve those who serve the 
Lord.

BAPTIST CHILDREN'S HOMES REPORT 

No matter how much adults try to convince themselves other- 
wise, children suffer when parents divorce. 

Amber suffered because she blames her mother for household 
turmoil, and because she was young and confused, Amber told her 
mother she hated her. She stopped communicating and became with- 
drawn. She chose wrong friends and attempted to take her own life. 

In today's atmosphere, when divorce rocks as many marriages 
as it misses, thousands of children like Amber look for anchors. And 
in today's atmosphere, just as in the atmosphere of the 1880's, and 
every year since, Baptist Children's Homes provides that anchor for 
hundreds of children. 

In 1992-93 BCH served 1,469 young people and their families, 
probably an all time high. 

Through services provided at 13 facilities statewide, BCH 
offered residential care, maternity care, a home for teenage mothers 
and their babies, therapeutic camping, model day care, emergency 
care and behavioral change. 

Through the Cooperative Program, church budgets and the 
Thanksgiving Offering, Baptist churches provided about one-third of 
the $11 million necessary to care for those children. Other revenue 
comes from payment for services on a sliding scale, foundations and 
corporations and individual gifts. A significant source of help comes 
from individuals who remember Baptist Children's Homes, and the 
children it serves, in their estate planning. 

"I couldn't handle what was going on at home," Amber said, 
after a year in the intensive group process at Kennedy Home. "I want- 
ed a way out. I saw (suicide) as the only way. I had totally turned my 
back on God." 

Under the tutelage of Kennedy Home Baptist Church's pas- 
tor, Amber has rededicated her life to the Lord and was baptized. She 
is now memorizing Scripture and doing devotions. 

Between her renewed faith and the peer group process, Amber 
has begun to resolve the differences with her mother. When she grad- 
uates from Kennedy Home, she plans to live with her mother and sis- 
ter. 

"Just being able to talk through it with group and with staff 
helped make it better," Amber said. "They helped me understand mom 
may have moved out, but she never left me. She's always been sup- 
portive. 

Working through problems at BCH involves identifying your 
problems, putting a name to them. Helps a child realize he/she is not 
a "problem child" but is a "child with problems." 

"If I was alive without this place, I wouldn't be in a happy life," 
Amber said. "I'm really thankful there are places like this. 

Amber's gratitude expresses the feelings of hundreds of chil- 
dren each year, and the staff who serves them. Many young people 
need BCH. Thankfully, many Baptist adults are committed to provid- 
ing their needs, for Jesus' sake.

BAPTIST SUMMER CAMP REPORT 

This year the Baptist Camp has progressed a little farther 
toward taking the load off the churches in regard to its upkeep. Our 
Chairman, Mr. Leonard Jordan, has provided able leadership and 
given of his time, equipment, and energies toward bringing the camp- 
ground into a more satisfactory condition. Of course, the other mem- 
bers of the committee have contributed sacrificially too, as well as a 
number of individuals who faithfully helped us each year at workday. 

Mrs. Debbie Miller is employed on a "part-time" basis to do 
cleaning and inspection, and "High Country Improvements, Inc." is 
employed, as needed, to do maintenance work. 

We are still depending upon the churches to do the mowing. 
There seems to be a growing dissatisfaction at being asked to do this, 
but several churches seem to enjoy taking their turn. We would appre- 
ciate hearing from your church in this regard. If the finances contin- 
ue to be sufficient, we could consider hiring someone to do the mow- 
ing. Another possibility would be an extra church contribution to go 
toward hiring someone to mow in place of your church. We are open 
for suggestions. 

One problem we are having is that the ceiling is being damaged 
by balls thrown up against it, usually from the direction of the cots. 
Many were replaced last year, and more have been damaged this year. 
We would ask each group to keep close enough supervision to avoid 
abuse and to clean up after yourselves, haul off your garbage, cut off 
the breakers for heat and the hot water heater, cut off the light 
switches and fans and lock up. 

We have a great camp; please help us keep it that way.

Rev. Jack Pugh, Director of Missions 



1994 BAPTIST COLLEGES REPORT 

One year and 338 days after Pearl Harbor, the Council on 
Christian Higher Education was created: November 17, 1943. The 
first Council meeting occurred January 17, 1944, four months and 20 
days before D-Day. Reports to the Baptist State Convention in those 
years contained many references to World War II and its effects upon 
churches, communities, the colleges and Baptist work in general. It 
was a time of weakness and confusion. War was raging in Europe and 
the Pacific, and the outcome was still in doubt. 

In such a time there were visionary Baptist who by faith could 
see beyond the clouds of war to the needs of peacetime. A Convention 
committee of 64 members labored almost two years before recom- 
mending that the Council be established. Chowan College was closed 



126 ASHE BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 



in 1944, Gardner- Webb College was not yet funded by the Convention, 
and Wingate College received only $5,000. The clear aim was to 
strengthen the colleges, increase their moral and financial support 
among Baptist, place Christian Higher Education high on the Baptist 
agenda, and to organize such efforts on a continuing basis. 

In 1994, the Council on Christian Higher Education's 50th year 
of operation, let us give thanks for those pioneer Baptist whose fore- 
sight, insight and good works caused North Carolina Baptist to 
become leaders in the field of Christian Higher Education.

BAPTIST HOSPITAL REPORT 



Founded in 1922, Baptist Hospital is a missionary enterprise 
of the Baptist churches of North Carolina. The essence of our purpose 
is to carry out a ministry of healing as taught by Jesus Christ. We 
remain as fully committed to this mission as were our founding 
fathers. In the midst of changing health-care norms, we have not, nor 
will we deviate from this mission. The following paragraphs report, 
not only basic facts, but various results of how we have sought in the 
last year to remain true to our heritage while providing quality health 
care affordable prices. 

Providers and recipients of healing - Our hospital healing team 
now consists of 5,777 employees. The Medical Center (North Carolina 
Baptist Hospital and Bowman Gray School of Medicine) personnel 
total employment is fast approaching 9,000 people making us the sec- 
ond largest employer in Forsyth County. In our 806-bed facility, we 
had 23,545 inpatient admissions during our fiscal year 1993-94. Our 
Outpatient Department, physicians' clinics, and other related depart- 
ments received 523,672 patient visits. 

DEPARTMENT OF PASTORAL CARE - Our chaplaincy division 
joins with health-care professionals to provide spiritual and emotion- 
al healing. With 15 to 35 chaplains present at various times, 58,747 
ministries were provided to patients, families, staff and groups. 
Mission dollars from the Cooperative Program enables this ministry 
ko be carried out. 

The Center fo,r Congregational Health, in its second year of min- 
istry as a part of our Department of Pastoral Care, continues to 
expand and strengthen. To date thru 1993, 40 ministers have com- 
pleted intentional interim training and 29 are in training. The num- 
ber of churches calling intentional interim pastors continues to 
increase. The training of consultants for conflicted churches and lead- 
ership training for young ministers were both begun. 

The Pastoral Counseling Division now operates 12 counciling 
centers across the state. These centers provided 26,716 hours, a five 
percent increase over the previous year. 

In December 1994, Dr. Dewey Hobbs will retire as Director of the 
Department of Pastoral Care. His eleven years of leadership and min- 
istry have brought quality and expansion in every facet of the depart- 
ment. 

BAPTIST BENEVOLENT CARE FUND - Last year Baptist 
across our state gave $425,734 to our annual Mother's Day Offering. 
All of these monies went toward relieving the financial burden of 
scores of former patients who have little or no health-care insurance 
and no financial means to pay their hospital bills. The churches and 
individuals help this ministry possible and we are grateful. 



ASHE BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 129 



EXCELLENT FINANCIAL STEWARDSHIP - In the midst of escalat- 
ing health-care costs, we have a proven record of superb stewardship. 

(1) The latest report of the North Carolina Database Commission com- 
paring the average of other state academic medical center charges vs. 
Baptist Hospital for our most frequent diagnoses reveals our charges 
are 21% lower. 

(2) We are one of the only 17 hospitals nationally with a "AA" bond 
credit rating. 

(3) Averaging the last two years and the projection for 1994, the 
Consumer Price Index will average 2.8% and the Medical CPI for hos- 
pitals will average 8.9% Baptist Hospital rate increases for the same 
period will average 1.8%, under both the above-mentioned indexes. 

MEETING THE CHALLENGES OF THE FUTURE - The health 
care environment is and will continue to be changing. Baptist 
Hospital is proactively facing these changes on a daily basis. Below 
are listed several visions which have recently been or will soon be 
realized. 

Nursing Center ant Oak Summit - Opened in July 1993 this 170-bed 
facility offers four levels of care. It is also one of only a few nursing 
centers in North Carolina that provides care for ventilator-dependent 
patients. 

Emergency Department/Dietary Building - Progressing toward a late 
1995 opening, this facility will expand our ED capacity to 70,000 vis- 
its annually. It will also house three floors of patient private rooms, 
our Pharmacy Department, a new kitchen and 900-seat cafeteria, and 
a 35-bed Day Hospital. 

J. Paul Sticht Center on Aging and Rehabilitation - This building will 
usher in a new era in rehabilitation at our Medical Center. Housing a 
total of 128 beds, it will contain a geriatric day hospital which will aid 
the transition from hospital to home, inpatient rehabilitation nursing 
units, a psychiatric floor, geriatric research and education. 
Completion is targeted for 1996. 

At home health care - our Home Health Solutions provides our local 
region with parenteral nutrition and intravenous antibiotic therapy, 
chemotherapy and pain management. Home Health Specialists pro- 
vides nursing care, personal care and physical and occupational ther- 
apy. 

Center of Research on Human and Chronic Disease Prevention - 
Our continued partnership with Bowman Gray School of Medicine 
enables our Medical Center to provide the highest quality of research, 
education, and patient care. Quoting Dean Richard Janeway. "We are 
trying to prevent the major killers such as cancer, strokes, and heart 
attacks. With this facility we'll be able to transfer the information 
straight to the patient's bedside. 

COMMUNITY HOSPITAL ASSISTANCE - Developing relation- 
ships with community hospitals such as Stokes Reynolds in Danbury 
and Hoots Hospital in Yadkinville enables us to assist them in lower- 
ing costs as well as providing quality hospital and outpatient care. 



130 ASHE BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 

We anticipate expanding this endeavor to include other smaller, out- 
lying hospitals. We also have significant affiliate relationship with 
hospitals in Wilkesboro, Lexington, and Mt. Airy and are in the 
process of developing other affiliate relationships. 

QUALCHOICE OF NORTH CAROLINA - Joining with BGSM 
and Wake Forest University, Baptist Hospital has developed a man- 
aged care plan. Our design is one which offers affordable quality 
health care while providing the insured freedom of choice. This plan 
will be opened for public enrollment beginning January 1, 1995. 

A closing word - We continue to esteem our heritage, celegrate 
our current capabilities, and strive to position ourselves for the future. 
Your partnership, prayers, and utilization of our services inspires our 
dedication to our mission. We are grateful to God and to the North 
Carolina Baptist family.

BAPTIST MEN REPORT 

There are three major overseas volunteer mission projects going 
on right now that need the involvement of the men and women from 
your church: 

UKRAINE - The Ukraine partnership is going strong. Volunteers are 
needed for trips in September, October, and November. These trips 
involve construction on the seminary in Kiev and on churches outside 
of Kiev. 

PRAGUE - International Baptist Theological Seminary is relo- 
cating their campus from Ruschlikon, Switzerland to Praque, Czech 
Republic. International Baptist Theological Seminary has purchased 
a piece of property in Prague complete with beautiful buildings that 
are up to 250 years old. It will take a lot of effort by many volunteers 
to help prepare this property for seminary use beginning in 
September, 1995. NC Baptist Men have been asked to coordinate the 
United States volunteer efforts in renovating this property. We are 
very excited about this much needed project and the opportunity that 
this provides to involve more North Carolina Baptist in missions. 
Volunteers are needed immediately. There are trips in September, 
October, December, and January. 

ZAIRE - The Brotherhood Commission is involved in a mission 
project to refugees from Rwanda who have left Rwanda and traveled 
to Zaire. There are thousands of refugees who are in desperate need 
of clean water, food, and medical aid. The Brotherhood Commission 
has asked NC Baptist Men to assist them in this project. We need doc- 
tors, nurses, cooks, men to run water purification units and other vol- 
unteers for this project. The trip dates are August 12-29 and August 



ASHE BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 131 



21-September 6. There are a number of shots that are required to par- 
ticipate on this project. Participants must have a valid passport. If you 
want more information, please call Lonnie Reynolds, NC Baptist 
Men's office (1-800-395-5102) as soon as possible. 



BIBLICAL RECORDER 

The rapid changes taking place in our world have produced dis- 
torted values, violence, threats and uncertainly and the surrender of 
much that is good and wholesome while creating false heros who fail. 
Baptists must rise up to face these decisions and issues before our 
window of opportunity is lost forever. We must not squander our her- 
itage from yesterday and our mission for tomorrow. 

There is no way to address these issues without correct and reli- 
able information. The Biblical Recorder was born and continues to 
serve for that purpose. Never was the Recorder more needed than 
now, with charges and countercharges flying, with people trying to 
use and manipulate others. People are reading less than any time 
in recent history. It is true of secular publications, it is true of whole- 
some books from respected libraries, it is true of religious publica- 
tions. We live in an electronic age where many think they know the 
answers to the issues only to discover they do not. It is impossible to 
know in depth what is happening when we depend on "60-second 
sound bites" of news on television or radio. 

An informed Baptist is a better Baptist; and uninformed Baptist 
may be an uninvolved or disruptive Baptist. No democracy, including 
our local churches, can survive long without an informed, involved 
constituency which makes decisions based upon accurate information 
from reliable sources. 

The most important thing facing us at this point is to get the 
Recorder into more Baptist homes than ever before. Your support as 
a subscriber and reader and your encouragement to others will enable 
the paper to better serve the constituency with accurate and helpful 
information delivered to Baptist homes and churches. We need your 
help! 

In order to save churches large amounts of money and to 
increase the readership of the Recorder , Church News Service (CNS) 
was launched in 1990. This system lets any congregation have their 
church news incorporated into the Biblical Recorder which saves staff 
time, postage and printing costs. Usually, for less than what it costs 
to produce the church newsletter, CNS gives the entire Baptist com- 
munication package to each family in the congregation. Anticipated 
increases in ambling costs makes CNS a greater value in 1995 than 
when it was started in 1990. 

The paper focuses more and more attention on North Carolina 
Baptist with news, features and inspirational articles which will 
encourage individuals and churches in their witness and ministry. 



132 ASHE BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 

One sure way to conquer problems and overcome the barriers to effec- 
tive witness and ministry is to have the facts, know the issues and be 
adequately informed. With all the stress and disturbance in the world, 
"The North Carolina Baptist Way" has become even more important 
to us than ever before. 

That is why the Recorder was born; that is why it serves today.

BAPTIST RETIREMENT HOMES 

As a result of the wonderful support given by North Carolina 
Baptist, 1994 will be remembered as one of the finest years in the 43 
year history of Baptist Retirement Homes. The following are some 
highlights from the year: 

In recognition of its commitment to the spiritual well-being of 
the residents that it serves, Baptist Retirement Homes hired W. Paul 
Riggs to serve as Chaplain to the residents of the Prince Nursing Care 
Center in Winston-Salem and the Rickman Nursing Care Center in 
Asheville. 

Reaffirming its commitment to the idea that retirement 
should be a "step-up" for Older Adults, the renovation of the Taylor 
House in Albermarle was completed and renovation of the Hamilton 
Baptist Home in Martin County was begun. When the renovation of 
the Hamilton Baptist Home is completed in mid- 1995, all of the facil- 
ities operated by the Baptist Retirement Homes will be "State-of-the- 
Art." 

In recognition of the changing profile of institutionalized 
Older Adults (47% of the "oldest old" in North Carolina suffer from 
some form of dementia), a special small group approach to the care for 
institutionalized Older Adults suffering from denentia was instituted 
at the Prince Nursing Care Center in Winston-Salem. Through the 
implementation of this program, Baptist Retirement Homes once 
again demonstrated its commitment to the principle that everyone 
has the right to age with dignity and to enjoy a certain qualit} 7 of life 
throughout the aging process. 

In an effort to provide Older Adults with affordable care, a 
sub-acute unit was developed at the Prince Nursing Care Center in 
Winston-Salem ...a unit where frail Older Adults can receive such 
treatments as IV therapy, infusion, wound care, and stroke and bone 
fracture rehabilitation outside of a hospital setting. 

In response to the need to provide quality long-term care ser- 
vices to the ever growing number of frail Baptist Older Adults, Baptist 



ASHE BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 1 33 



Retirement Homes expanded its nursing services in 1994 to include 
an additional 100 Older Adults (80% of that group being classified as 
the poor elderly... men and women who lack sufficient financial 
resources to pay for the institutional services they receive.) 

Thank you North Carolina Baptist for helping us make life for 
Older Adults... The Best of Times!

CHRISTIAN ACTION LEAGUE OF NC 

Report To the Association 1994 

Can God's people make a difference concerning the moral climate 
of our state? There is no doubt about it! The $300 billion gambling 
industry has targeted our state for legalized gambling. Why North 
Carolina? The fact is that N. C. is the largest state in the nation where 
gambling industry has not been able to get their foot in the door. 
Furthermore, NC is the only state in the traditional Bible belt where 
the gambling industry has not been able to make any inroads. In order 
to get their legislation enacted, they hired 14 of the most influential 
and effective lobbyists that money can buy to sell "their bill of goods" 
to the members of the N. C. General Assembly. 

Is there anyway to defeat such money and power? Yes! Through 
the Prayers and Influence of God's people! It happened in 1994! 

The legislature has adjourned - the members have gone home - 
the gambling lobbyists have packed their bags and left town. 

How was it done? Baptist and other Christians fulfilled their 
Biblical responsibilities by influencing their legislators through their 
prayers, letters, phone calls, and personal contacts. 

The Christian Action League along with the Christian Life 
Council of the Baptist State Convention; N. C. Baptist Men; and 
Women's Missionary Union, has conducted 36 workshops, the CHRIS- 
TIAN LOOKS AT GAMBLING, to educate and motivate our people 
into action against this insidious evil. You responded, and now, we can 
claim the victory. 

Furthermore, when communities like Asheboro, Albemarle, 
Concord, Kannapolis, Thomasville, and Manteo, including Hyde and 
Harnett Counties, faced battles with the powerful $140 billion dollar 
liquor industry during the year, we were delighted to provide cam- 
paign strategy, research documents, and publicity materials. The 
liquor forces did not win any of these referendums. 

We thank God for your support of our Ministry of Applied 
Christianity, and we stand ready to assist God's people in being the 
"salt" and "light" that He would have us be.

DISCIPLESHIP TRAINING REPORT 

The purpose of the Discipleship Training Team of the Ashe 
Baptist Association is to promote Discipleship Training in our associ- 
ation. Discipleship is the Christian's long life commitment to the 
Person, teaching, and Spirit of Jesus Christ. Life under Jesus' 
Lordship involves progressive learning, growth in Christ likeness, 
application of Biblical truths to every area of life, responsibility for 
snaring the Christian faith, and responsible church membership. It is 
the goal of the team to have on-going discipleship training in each of 
the churches of the Ashe Baptist Association. 

Discipleship Training in Ashe Association saw a 20% increase 
during the 1993-94 associational year. This was an increase in the 
number of churches offering Discipleship training and the number of 
existing programs increasing. We are thankful for the churches that 
continue to have strong Discipleship Training, as well as those 
churches that are just beginning. Churches with Discipleship training 
excel in three major areas; Sunday School enrollment, baptisms, and 
giving. 

There is now a large range of materials available for training in 
all areas from Family Life to Deacon Ministry, from Counselling to 
Healthful Living, from Experiencing God to church members, and 
much more. No longer will a church find a "plan" but instead that 
church can tell the Discipleship Team what the need in their church 
is and we will share with the church all the resources available in that 
area. Discipleship Training can happen any day of the week and any 
time during that day is best for the church. 

Christians have unlimited possibilities for spiritual growth and 
the responsibility for that growth. It is our desire for churches to pro- 
vide their members with the resources they need for this growth, "till 
we all come in the unity of the faith, and knowledge of the Son of God, 
unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of 
Christ." 

The Discipleship Team is ready to come to your church any time 
upon request of that church to share with you what is available and 
aid you in a plan for discipleship. 

Respectfully Submitted, Linda Blackburn, Discipleship Director

EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE REPORT 

The Executive Committee was well attended this past year, 
with an average attendance of 23 1/2 churches represented. 
It has been a joy to serve as Moderator and work with each church 
and their representatives. I am very thankful for the encouragement 
each one gave to me, because there were some very difficult moments. 
As time passes it becomes even more important for the churches and 
their representatives to be present at all the Executive Committee 
meetings. The Committee only meets four times a year. 
I especially appreciate the help of Vice-Moderator, Charles King, for 
filling in for me when I couldn't be present.

FOREIGN MISSIONS REPORT 

The Kenyan Baptist Convention and the Baptist Mission of 
Kenya have been led of God to set aside five weeks in June and July 
of 1995 to reach tens of thousands with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. 
They have asked Southern Baptist in the United States to come par- 
ticipate with them in this historical evangelistic endeavor. God is 
moving in the beautiful country of Kenya, and He has placed before us 
this timely and unique opportunity to share the truth of His Word. 

Our work will involve church revivals area-wide evangelistic ral- 
lies, door-to-door witnessing, church planting, and discipleship. We 
will be working in teams, shoulder-to-shoulder with Kenyan 
Christians from local churches, and from all over Kenya in this excit- 
ing ministry. Please pray about your church joining with more than a 
thousand Southern Baptist in participating in the Greater Nairobi 
Crusade. "Go ye therefore... "Matt. 28:19.

HOME MISSION BOARD REPORT 

The Home Mission Board (HMB) is a missionary-sending agency 
of the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC). Headquartered in Atlanta, 
Ga., the HMB's purpose is to serve Southern Baptist by assisting 
churches to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ, start and grow New 
Testament congregations, and minister to people in the name of 
Christ. 

At the end of last year, 4,882 missions personnel were serving in 
the United States, the Caribbean, Guam, American Samoa, and 
Canada. The HMB also had endorsed more than 2,300 chaplains who 
were serving in healthcare agencies, institutions, businesses, the mil- 
itary, and pastoral-care roles. More than 1,700 Mission Service Corps 
volunteers were serving on home mission fields. During the year there 
were 1,500 church starts (more than four per day) and 349,073 bap- 
tisms. 

Approximately half of the HMB's support comes from individual 
SBC churches through the annual Annie Armstrong Easter Offering 
for Home Missions. In 1993, gifts to the offering totaled $36.31 mil- 
lion, about 3 percent less than the 1992 total. One hundred percent of 
the offering goes to support the work of home missionaries in the field. 
The 1994 Annie Armstrong Easter Offering goal is $40 million. About 
36 percent of the HMB's income comes from the denomination's 
Cooperative Program. 

The following is a summary of program/support ministry high- 
lights from 1993: 

Chaplaincy Ministries - The 2,325 Southern Baptists now serving as 
chaplains and pastoral counselors reported more than 24,000 profes- 
sions of faith and 4,500 baptisms. 

Church Loans - Approximately 1,056 churches have active loans total- 
ing $131.1 million. The Church Loans Division closed 120 church 
loans totaling $32 million, including $3.8 million in refinancing. 
Language Missions - Home missionaries and pastors in the Language 
Church Extension Division serve among 102 ethnic groups using 98 
languages and dialects. 

Evangelism - During Crossover Houston, the Mass Evangelism 
Department coordinated 35 street evangelism events, 25 block par- 
ties, nine evangelistic rallies, and 68 special Harvest Revivals and 
events. These activities resulted in 1,253 conversions. The Personal 
Evangelism Department produced and shipped materials for "Here's 
Hope. Share Jesus Now." This emphasis will include 60 Days of Soul- 
Winning, January 9 - March 9,1995. 

Volunteers - More than 74,860 Southern Baptist adults, college stu- 
dents, and youth group members volunteered for long - and short- 
term projects. In addition, several thousand more were involved in 
disaster relief efforts in the Midwest. 

Church Evangelism Development - Over 1 Million teens participated 
in "See You At The Pole," gathering at their flagpoles to pray for the 



138 ASHE BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 

schools of our nation. 

Administration - The Home Mission Board broke ground for a new 
national office building which will be completed in 1995. Customer 
Services received more than 51,000 calls and shipped almost 5 million 
pieces of HMB material. 

Respectfully Submitted, Mrs. Lois Jones, Area Representative 

PREACHERS' CONFERENCE REPORT 

On the second Saturday in each month throughout the year,pas- 
tors serving churches in the Ashe Baptist Association have the privi- 
lege of coming together with fellow pastors and any interested lay-per- 
sons for a time of fellowship and inspiration. This time is of the great- 
est importance to the pastor because he is constantly giving of himself 
through the proclamation of God's Word, visitation, counseling, and 
many other duties to which he is called. It is of the ut-most importance 
that he periodically come aside and become the hearer. 

Attendance this past year leaves much to be desired. Average 
attendance has been about eight each month. There are about forty- 
five pastors serving in the association. I'm sure we pastors would be 
so discouraged if the members of our flock were no more faithful than 
this. This is a cause which is worthy of our prayers and support. 

Let us join together in making this coming year a Good Year of 
our Preacher's Conference through our prayers and by our presence. 

Respectfully Submitted, 
Bill Ballou, Past Chairman 



SEMINARY EXTENSION REPORT 

Sometimes I am overwhelmed by all that Southern Baptist are 
privileged to be a part of. Seminary Extension is a ministry of which 
Southern Baptist can be proud. We are grateful for those who have 
been involved in Seminary Extensions this past year. Brother Jack 
Pugh taught "Overview of the Old Testament, Part I." Jack will be 
teaching the second part of this course in the near future. Rev. Carroll 
Arant taught "Master Life I" this past year. There were fourteen stu- 
dents in this course. Brother Carroll will teach "Master Life II" begin- 
ning August 18, 1994 at Fletcher Memorial Baptist Church. 

As Southern Baptist we should take advantage of the things 
Southern Baptist provide. I hope you will take advantage of the cours- 
es offered through Seminary Extension this year.

We enter the final year of the BREAKTHROUGH emphasis in 
'94-'95. The focus will be BREAKTHROUGH-Witness to Win. It is the 
desire of the ASSIST Team that there be a breakthrough in all the 
churches of Ashe Baptist Association. May the Holy Spirit give us a 
genuine concern of reaching the lost and unchurched people in our 
communities. The challenge before us is to seek God's guidance and 
with total commitment - "Witness to Win." The Sunday School is the 



140 ASHE BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 

most effective outreach/witnessing organization in your church. 
Unfortunately its potential goes untapped in most churches. The 
ASSIST Team would like to encourage every Pastor and Sunday 
School Director to have your Sunday School Workers at the 
Associational Training School at Warrensville Baptist Church, 
August 29, 1994 at 7 P.M. Emphasis will be on Understanding the 
people we teach and the BREAKTHROUGH-Witness to Win. 

We would also encourage any church to call upon the ASSIST 
Team for personal consultation with your church. The team is well- 
trained and capable of helping churches evaluate their present 
Sunday School organization, make suggestions for improvement and 
provide training and assistance in making those improvements.

Dorothy Witherspoon ASSIST Director 



STATE MISSIONS REPORT 

North Carolina is our primary mission field. The challenges for 
reaching this mission field are greater than they have ever been. 

Our state continues to grow in its ethnic population. Asians and 
Hispanics are the two fastest growing ethnic groups in North 
Carolina. Most of them come to us without a church background. 

The number of people living in multi-family housing complexes 
continues to grow faster than the number living in single-family 
dwellings. The majority of those in multi-family housing do not 
attend church. 

The breakup of families has become an epidemic. By the year 
2000, one naif bf our children will spend part of their lives in a single 
parent home. 

The issue of crime continues to plague us. A youth offender 
reported that he could not get a driver's license, but he could purchase 
a gun. 

Those suffering from the HIV virus continue to grow in number. 

The resort communities of North Carolina continue to attract 
millions of people every year, many of whom have not heard the 
Gospel of Jesus Christ. 

North Carolina has over 21,000 inmates in its prison system. 
Many thousands of our citizens suffer from hearing or visual impair- 
ment. Over 50,000 of our population are in nursing homes. 

These and many other issues describe our primary mission field 
- North Carolina. 

The Missions Division of the Baptist State convention works 
with local churches and Baptist Associations in this mission field to 
meet these, and many other human needs. 



ASHE BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 141 

A new mission statement was written by the division staff in 
1994 to clearly identify the purposes of the division. The statement 
reads: 

The Missions Division of the Baptist State Convention of North 
Carolina seeks to direct the mission work of Baptist in North 
Carolina and work cooperatively to open windows of opportunity 
for a worldwide mission program. The work of the division focus- 
es upon (1) New Work Starts and Development, (2) Redevelop- 
ment of Existing Churches, (3) Leadership Development for

Behind the statement is our commitment to work with churches 
and associations in reaching their corner of our mission field. The 
Missions Division seeks to work with churches and associations in a 
partnership relationship. The way we achieve the goals of the conven- 
tion for mission work is to help associations and churches achieve 
their mission goals in their community. 

In 1994 the division will provide $700,000 in funds for mission 
work in associations. This money is provided through Cooperative 
Program contributions and gifts to the State Mission Offering.

VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL REPORT 

All of us have been on a great adventure with the TRAIL OF 
TREASURES this summer. Now it is time to rest by our camp fire and 
talk about our results. 

In hearing back from some of you, this has been another great 
VBS year for us. The theme this year was so much fun to work with. 
A big thanks goes to our Associational VBS Team for their hard work

1993-1994 YOUTH COUNCIL REPORT 

The members of the Youth Council praise God for another great 
year in youth ministry here in Ashe County! 

The Youth Council began planning in the fall of 1993 for the Ken 
Smith Crusade. That which was accomplished through the crusade 
was God's work, and I am so thankful that we had the opportunity to 
join with God in what God was doing. During the crusade, 67 young 
people made professions of faith, and 119 others made commitments 
such as rededications, seeking God's will for their lives, and many 
came expressing a burden for their friends and wanting to be a wit- 
ness for our Lord! 

Ken Smith was used by God in a very powerful way to reach 
young people, and if you attended the crusade, you were well aware of 
the power of the Holy Spirit at work drawing youth to the Lord Jesus! 
We each need to thank God for what He has done, but also we must 
realize the responsibility in our lives as individuals and in our church- 
es to not allow that excitement and enthusiasm to die. We must con- 
tinue to reach out to youth and provide activities for fellowship and 



ASHE BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 143 



disciple them as growing believers in the Lord Jesus. 

During the crusade, we received a love offering for Ken Smith, 
but Ken felt lead of God to leave half of that money here in Ashe 
County to provide scholarships for two young people attending a 
Baptist college this fall. The amount given by Ken Smith was 
$1,131.56, the Youth Council has decided to supplement that amount 
with $868.44 to create two one-time scholarships for $1,000.00 each. 
The Council is currently interviewing applicants, with the intention of 
awarding the scholarships for the fall 1994 semester. 

The churches of Ashe County contributed $8,477.00 toward the 
crusade, we spent $6,436.66, leaving a balance of 2,040.34. When the 
scholarships are awarded, there will be $1,171.90 from the crusade 
budget surplus that will be placed in the Youth Council account as 
seed money for a future youth crusade. We received contributions 
from the following churches: 

Old Fields Baptist 500.00

On behalf of the Youth Council, not only do I want to express my 
appreciation to the churches, but I also want to thank the individuals 



144 ASHE BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 

who committed a great deal of time and effort from already busy 
schedules to work on the crusade sub-committees. I want to thank 
each person who served on a Work Squad and especially the individ- 
uals who served as chairmen: 

Counselor and Follow-Up Squad: Rev. Billy Joe Blevins and Rev. 
Ervel Jones 

Prayer Squad: Rev. Johnny and Vickie Blevins 
Publicity Squad: Mr. Jack Young 

Outreach Squad: Rev. David Testerman and Mrs. Teshia Dillard 
Bring 'Em Back Alive Squad: Mr. Keith Dillard 
Jesus-Cruise and Concert: Rev. Victor Church 
True Love Waits Squad: Rev. David Wellborn 
Facilities and Arrangements Squad: Mr. Jack Ashley 
Finance: Rev. Rex Eldreth 
Pizza Blast: Mr. Terry Hartsog 
Enlistment: Miss Willa Dean Church 
Music: Mr. Scott Privette and Rev. Wade Ivey 

In relation to the Crusade, I personally want to express my 
appreciation to each of you who worked so diligently as you assumed 
leadership roles, and to each church that contributed financially. But 
most of all, the honor, praise and glory is due unto the Lord! What was 
accomplished was a God-sized task. God working through us to accom- 
plish his purpose and His will. Praise The Lord! 

I encourage the churches of the Ashe Association to continue to 
pray for the Youth Council as they attemp to meet the needs of youth 
and equip the churches to minister more effectively. Pray that God 
will guide the Youth Council to see what God is doing and make the 
commitment to join with God as He desires to provide times of fellow- 
ship for young people and to share the gospel of Jesus Christ. 

Respectfully Submitted, 
Jim Rash, Youth Council, Chairman
